Club willing to sell £35m forward to Man Utd, Mourinho loves
CHELSEA will reportedly consider an offer from Manchester United for Willian.
The Daily Star revealed last month that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is keen on a reunion with the Brazilian international.
The Special One has made the winger one of his top transfer targets ahead of a busy summer at Old Trafford.
And according to the Independent, Chelsea are open to selling Willian to United.
They say Antonio Conte will splash the cash in the summer and will have to sell players to fund his spending spree.
Willian has struggled to get game time under the Italian this season.
The 28-year-old has started just 14 Premier League games for the title-winning Blues.
He was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year at the end of last season, being also granted a new four-year deal worth £100,000-a-week.
Despite the fresh contract, the Brazil international could be heading out of the club this summer, with United ready to meet Chelsea’s £35m asking price for the former Shakhtar Donetsk star.
It’s tough to say whether Willian is happy to stay at Chelsea despite his minimizing role, but it’s certain that if United of all teams want to sign him, they’re going to have to make a very, very good bid for him.
