Pat Nevin has expressed the belief that Willian could end up at Manchester United next season. The Brazilian appears to have fallen out with manager Antonio Conte recently after being used sparingly towards the end of the season.
Willian struggled to hold down a regular spot in Conte’s team since the Italian’s arrival at Chelsea. The Brazilian was a key player during Jose Mourinho’s time at Chelsea as he played a vital role in winning the Premier League and League Cup.
Regardless, Willian has always been linked with a move to Old Trafford since the appointment of Jose Mourinho. Willian’s supposed falling out with Conte became pronounced after the player obscured the manager from his Instagram photo in which Chelsea celebrated the FA Cup triumph.
Former Blues winger, Pat Nevin has admitted that Willian’s proposed move to Old Trafford is very much possible.
“I can see Willian as a Man United player under Mourinho,” Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk.
“Although he is a tricky player, he can be direct and do the right things. If there is a rift and Antonio Conte stays, that’s the obvious place for him to go.”
Willian has won two Premier League titles with Chelsea, the FA Cup and the League Cup in his five seasons at Stamford Bridge.
