Jose Mourinho Wants £60m Brazil Star At Manchester United

Anthony Martial

Manchester United are reportedly eager to sign Willian from Chelsea this summer and are preparing a £60 million bid for the Brazilian.

Despite been crowned Chelsea's Players' Player of the Year in May, Willian hinted that he was not finding life on the bench interesting.

According to the Daily Mail's Oliver Todd, Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho is keen to manage Willian once again having originally brought him to England from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 when he was Chelsea boss.

The transfer window continues to hot up and reports emerging today are suggesting that Man United are set to make a monster bid for Willian.

Mourinho, who brought the Brazil global to Stamford Bridge from Shakhtar Donetsk five years ago, is said to be after at least one attacking player this summer.

Willian's future at Stamford Bridge is in serious doubt as he recently admitted he found life on the bench hard at times last season after making just 20 Premier League starts under Antonio Conte.

'He can improve (them) a lot.

He would go on to be Manchester United's top scorer in his first campaign at the club, but the arrival of Jose Mourinho has seen the Frenchman's fortunes diminish. Willian can be a flawless fit at Old Trafford and one can expect the Red Devils to go all out for the Brazilian winger this summer.

If they are to complete the signing, the Express says it could allow Arsenal to swoop on Steven N'Zonzi, who would thus return to the Premier League. "We talked a little bit about that".
