Jose Mourinho will sanction £60m Man United bid for Chelsea FC star – report
Jose Mourinho will sanction a significant offer from Manchester United for Chelsea FC's Willian, according to a report
Jose Mourinho is prepared to spend £60m to bring Chelsea FC star Willian to Manchester United this summer, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mail, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils boss remains a big admirer of the Brazil international ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
The same article states that Mourinho is keen to be reunited with Willian at Old Trafford following their successful spell together at Stamford Bridge between 2013 and 2015.
According to the same story, the Manchester United manager would be willing to sacrifice France star Anthony Martial to get a deal over the line for the 29-year-old Brazilian star.
Manchester United finished in second place and three spots above the Blues in the Premier League table to secure Champions League football.
The 20-time English champions lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley after Eden Hazard’s first-half winner.
Willian came off the bench in the final minutes of the FA Cup showpiece to cast doubt on his long-term future at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United completed a surprise £40m deal to sign Serbia international Nemanja Matic from Chelsea FC last summer.
The Blues were heavily criticised for their decision to sell two-time Premier League winner Matic to Manchester United in 2017.
