Manchester United could be forced to end their interest in signing Willian this summer due to the uncertainty about the situation at Chelsea FC, according to reports in the British media.

Metro is reporting that the Red Devils may be forced to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements this summer.

The Blues are yet to resolve their managerial situation, with Antonio Conte still widely expected to leave the Stamford Bridge club this summer, despite a new appointment not yet having been made.

Chelsea FC have been linked with a number of managerial candidates including the likes of Maurizio Sarri and Luis Enrique.

The same story says that Jose Mourinho is keen on a reunion with Willian at Old Trafford this summer after having coached him during his second spell at Chelsea FC.

The article also claims that the Red Devils were keen on a move to sign Willian last summer but a switch failed to materialise for the Brazilian.

The story says that Mourinho remains keen on bringing Willian to Manchester United this summer but doesn’t want to get dragged into a long-running transfer saga about his future.

Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.
