Jose Mourinho is still interested in signing one of the most hardworking and energetic midfielders in the world, and quite frankly his injection of pace is something Manchester United really needs.
Boss Jose Mourinho tried to land Chelsea star Willian last summer and talks took place with the player’s representatives.
The Brazilian star, 29, decided to stay put but United are confident the deal can be done this time.
Willian’s Stamford Bridge contract lasts to 2020 and they would demand a £30million fee — the same price they paid to Shakhtar Donetsk five years ago.
Mourinho is planning some big changes as he bids to build a side capable of challenging Manchester City next season.
I think it’s a possible deal, after all we already got two impossible looking deals from Chelsea in the past few years – Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic.
