Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has made Chelsea’s attacking playmaker Willian as his top transfer target in the summer window. The former Real Madrid manager is a huge fan of the Brazilian and according to reports from the Daily Star, The Portuguese is set to greenlight a £50 million deal for the talented 28-year-old.
The wizard midfielder has failed to nail down a regular starting spot under Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho is confident of luring Willian to Old Trafford by offering him an eye-watering deal worth £200,000/week.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder was Chelsea’s best player last season, however, he has seen his place being taken by the remarkable Pedro under Antonio Conte. Willian bloomed under Jose Mourinho and the Red Devil manager is confident of getting the best out the attacking playmaker at Old Trafford.
Should this move happen, it will not be the first time in recent years when a Blue side superstar joined Manchester United. Midfielder Juan Mata himself was famously let go of by Jose Mourinho in Chelsea. Although Antonio Conte might be afraid to sell to a direct rival, a £50 million bid might force him to reconsider his options.
