Former captain Gary Neville says that, as a fan, he would be happy to see the 25-year-old leave if his focus was not on United, but Mourinho says the World Cup victor has not told him that he wants to go.
Even when Watford finally got the goal their performance deserved, with Andre Gray firing home as United stood off midway through the second period, the visitors' response was that of a convincing unit as they saw off a late onslaught from Javi Gracia's men and even absorbed the injury-time sending-off of Nemanja Matic.

De Gea will have busier days than this, of course, though his contribution at Vicarage Road was still significant.
"So I'm going to do something, not for you, but the United fans, and I think I hold myself to the United fans and so for them I am going to spend two mins with you".

Under Mourinho, however, Rashford's playing time has come into question with some believing the Portuguese is failing in developing the youngster which gained more traction as he scored twice in two games for England over the worldwide break.
The Manchester United forward was given two starts due to Raheem Sterling withdrawing from the squad with a back problem, and took full advantage of his chance to impress Southgate, who is full of praise for the player.
Mourinho was in a bullish mood when talking about Rashford, however, following criticism the United boss has copped over the England star's playing time at the club.
However, the midfielder was in fine form for France at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation as he helped his country to win the trophy in style.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been impressed with Chris Smalling's recent form, though he is not keen on the centre-back's new haircut. That goal infused the team and the fans with renewed belief and United suddenly looked nervy.
