Manchester united manager, Jose Mourinho is interested in signing Chelsea winger, Willian. According to reports Mourinho is planning to raid his former club for the midfielder as the player continues to sit on the Blues bench.
Despite Willian’s contributions to Chelsea this season, he has failed to secure a first team spot, as Antonio Conte prefers other players. He scored twice in their FA Cup semifinal win over Tottenham last weekend, yet he was back on the substitute bench in their next game against Southampton.
Jose Mourinho signed Willian from under the noses of Liverpool and Tottenham in the summer of 2013, and the Brazilian helped him win the Premier League title the following season.
Mourinho is planning a major summer rebuilding of his United team this summer and wants to add the Brazilian to his playing squad. He believes the midfielders trickery, pace and goal scoring exploits would help his team thrive next season.
Willian has not spoken about his future recently, but if the Blues sign more players for his position, he would see it as a sign that Antonio Conte does not trust him, and he will leave.
