The Old Trafford club changed their scouting operation after Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
The legendary manager enjoyed using a small, tightly-knit circle of scouts to get his information.
But a need to modernise was seen as essential for the club and the major restructuring has seen the employment of dozens of talent spotters around the globe.
According to the Mail, the new operation "is causing serious concern for Mourinho, who wants a more streamlined operation."

The Mail have reported that the 55-year-old coach is becoming increasingly frustrated with the shear number of scouts deployed.
They said the former Chelsea chief is "perplexed at the scale of the department and privately argues the operation can be far more efficient."
Mourinho made no secret of his frustration to sign his top-targets in the summer.
He was disappointed not to sign a centre-back – with Harry Maguire, Diego Godin and Toby Alderweireld at the top of his wishlist and failing to seal a move.
And the scouting-set up could well be the reason why he has failed to secure those players.
