The France international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months.
Mourinho is a huge admirer of the defender, who he managed during his time at the Bernabeu.
Reports this week claimed United are willing to let David De Gea join Real if Varane moves to the Red Devils.
However, according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, Mourinho is running out of patience with Varane.
They say the United boss is ready to end his interest in the centre-back and move for Barcelona ace Samuel Umtiti instead.
Varane sees his future at Real and he hopes to become the club’s captain after Sergio Ramos.

Barcelona defender Umtiti has impressed since moving to the Nou Camp in the summer of 2016.
Diario Gol add that United would be willing to treble the France star’s wages at Old Trafford.
Barca would find it hard to fend off the Red Devils’ interest and could be forced to sell the ex-Lyon ace.
United are back in action after the international break when Mourinho’s men host Newcastle in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
