Shocking reports in the media claim that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is interested in signing his former player at Chelsea. The Portuguese boss is said to planning a summer swoop for Willian.
Willian was one of Mourinho’s trusted players when he won the league with Chelsea in 2015, but the Brazilian has found himself on the bench more often under Antonio Conte. The Brazilian is said to be quietly dissatisfied by this, but wants to concentrate on winning the league with Chelsea this season before planning his future.
This situation has led Mourinho to ask members of his club to watch the Player’s contract issue as it develops.
Mourinho is willing to offer Willian an escape route and believes the Brazilian will thrive under his management again.
With United closing in on a top four spot, if they qualify for the Champions League and Willian still does not get into the Chelsea first team, he may consider a move to Old Trafford.
It would be interesting to see if Chelsea will sell a player to their former manager whose relationship with them is still not as smooth as it used to be.
