Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Willian from Chelsea in the summer. According to reports from Sky Sports News, the Brazilian will be poised to leave Chelsea if Antonio Conte remains as head coach.
Willian has two years left in his current contract and there has been no formal offer from the Old Trafford outfit yet. The Brazilian was Chelsea’s player of the season, but was left out from the starting lineup in the FA Cup final at Wembley against Manchester United. That was his fourth appearance on the bench in Chelsea’s last five games.
He had previously laughed off questions of a rift with Conte but it became apparent when he edited Conte out of the picture of their trophy celebration on Instagram on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Conte’s future at Chelsea remains in doubt after an average season, despite the FA Cup triumph. The Italian reiterated his commitment to the club after the FA Cup win over Manchester United.
Willian has scored 44 goals in 236 appearances for Chelsea since he made the move from Russian side Anzhi in 2013.
