Willian has admitted that he is flattered to learn of the reported interest in signing him by Manchester United.

The Brazilian forward has been in and out of the Chelsea first team this season following Antonio Conte’s appointment as the club’s new manager last summer.

Willian has been limited to 12 Premier League starts so far this season and has made a further eight appearances from the bench.

The attacker was widely regarded as Chelsea’s standout performer last season after a campaign to forget for the west London side.

Willian was linked with a possible transfer to Manchester United in the build-up to the January transfer window, but a move failed to materialise.

However, the attacker has admitted that he was thrilled to learn of the reported interest from other clubs.

Willian told Globoesporte: “From Manchester United, because Mourinho is there too

“From other clubs I do not know, but there are always some things on the internet.

“But I’m glad to hear that there are clubs that admire my work.”
