Manchester United fans are reportedly jubilating on the news that they are on the verge of making a move of £60m in order to sign Chelsea South American winger Willian during this current transfer window. The Brazil international is said to be angry with Chelsea over playing time under the current Blues manager Antonio Conte after making just 20 league starts last season.
Report has it that Jose Mourinho whose admiration for Willian never go unnoticed since he took over at Old Trafford and is very keen for a reunion with the 29-year-old after the United failed to capture him during January transfer window. It is also believed that United are willing to make a bid worth around £60m in order to tempt Chelsea into selling one of their long serving player this summer.
The Brazilian work rate and creativity will definitely provide a United side the creative dimension they mostly lacked on the right side of the attack last season, a position where they are yet to find a suitable player since Ronaldo left for Madrid. However, the price seems much for a player who will turn 30 on August 9, the day the transfer window closes and Mourinho can as well see if the fee can be reduced if not try spending such amount elsewhere.
Notwithstanding, the move can still happen, if Manchester United can allow Anthony Martial to leave Old Trafford. The Frenchman’s agent has already spoken about the attacker’s intention to seek fresh challenge next season or they can possibility do a swap deal with Chelsea, who are also said to be interested in the France international.
