Jose Mourinho is taking on Manchester United’s young midfielder Charlie Wellens against old club Tottenham.
Mourinho is eager to bring in Roma by shining Valence during his spell at Old Trafford.
The 19-year-old Valence was brought into first-team training by Mourinho for the experience.
Special One wanted to take him to the Spurs, who are still interested.
Now North London clubs and Roma could compete in the January transfer window or in the summer.
Welles was called up to United’s Champions League squad and is playing under-21 football – but he may have better chances of progressing elsewhere.
This is not the first time that Valence has shown interest from the Italian side.
Serie A champions Inter Milan were interested in signing the midfielder last year.
