Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Willian’s situation at Chelsea with a view to a possible bid for the Brazilian, according to reports.

The Daily Star are reporting that Jose Mourinho is pondering a bid for the Brazilian winger after he has found his playing time somewhat limited under Antonio Conte this season.

Willian was Chelsea’s standout player last season as the Blues struggled in all departments and slumped to a 10th-placed finish in the Premier League.

The Brazil international has struggled to hold down a regular spot in Conte’s first team this term and Manchester United are thought to be interested in bringing him to Old Trafford this summer.

The same report states that Willian was a target for Manchester United last summer following Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford but a move failed to materialise.

Chelsea are currently top of the Premier League table as they chase a domestic double in Conte’s first season at the club.
