Manchester United are lining up a bid to sign Willian from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports
Manchester United are lining up a bid to sign Willian from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.
ESPN, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are pondering a swoop for the 29-year-old Brazil international as the doubts about Anthony Martial’s long-term future at Old Trafford continue.
The same report says that Manchester United tried and failed to sign Willian last summer.
And despite Jose Mourinho insisting that he is not planning to sign more attacking players this summer, the question marks about Martial’s future at Old Trafford could prompt Manchester United to make a move for Willian.
The same story says that Martial is being linked with a possible move to Juventus from Manchester United this summer.
Manchester United are likely to be linked with a number of players in the coming weeks and months as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
Mourinho knows Willian well, after having worked with the Brazilian attacker during his second spell in charge of Chelsea FC.
The Red Devils will aim to end the season on a positive note when they take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening.
