Reports are rife that Manchester United are preparing a £60 million move for Chelsea star and Brazil international Willian. Jose Mourinho is reportedly eyeing a reunion with the Brazilian who he worked with in his time at Chelsea. Willian joined Chelsea in 2013, and reports from Daily Mail suggest that he could be the subject of a bid from Old Trafford.

Willian was restricted to 20 starts in the Premier League for Chelsea last season and Mourinho will be looking to test the Blues’ resolve with a summer offer for the 29-year-old attacker.

Willian has two years remaining in his current Chelsea contract and played the full 90 minutes as Brazil began their Russia 2018 campaign with a 1 all draw against Switzerland on Sunday night.

It can be recalled that Willian described Man United as one of the best clubs in the world recently when he was asked about Fred’s move to Old Trafford.

He said: “Of course (Fred can make an impact), no doubt about that. He has a lot of qualities.

“He can improve (them) a lot. He goes to one of the best teams in the world. I am happy for him. I hope he does well at Manchester United.

“He is very happy to come to the Premier League to play. We talked a little bit about that.”
