Man United considering shock swoop for 29-year-old Chelsea star

Manchester United are reportedly considering a summer swoop for Chelsea star Willian.

Manager Jose Mourinho is already familiar with the Brazilian having coached him at Stamford Bridge for two years.

Under Antonio Conte over the past season and a half, Willian has struggled for regular game time, but he is currently in strong form having scored four goals in his last three outings.

According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho is keen to add another creative player to his squad for next season and the 29-year-old is on the club’s radar.

Willian has been a Chelsea player since 2013 when he signed from Anzhi Makhachkala.

Alongside Willian, Manchester United officials are also interested in signing a number of top-class midfielders across the Europe, including Radja Nainggolan from AS Roma, Toni Kroos from Real Madrid and Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
