Jose Mourinho will break his Manchester United transfer policy to sign Willian this summer, according to a report.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a bid to sign the Brazil international from their bitter Premier League rivals Chelsea FC in the current transfer market.

The same article states that Manchester United have attempted to sign players at the age of 27 or under since the Portuguese head coach took over the reins at Old Trafford apart from a couple of notable exceptions.

According to the same story, Mourinho would be willing to sign the South American attacker despite the Portuguese head coach previously stating that he wouldn’t sign a forward in the summer transfer window.

Willian finished the season out of favour under Chelsea FC manager Antonio Conte to raise questions about his long-term future at the FA Cup winners.

The Chelsea FC star hit out at the Italian head coach on social media after he was left out of the west London side’s starting XI for their 1-0 win against Manchester United in the FA Cup final last term.

The Blues finished in fifth spot to miss out on Champions League football next season.
