The South American forward is facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge after his very public fallout with under pressure Chelsea FC boss Antonio Conte.
Willian was a late substitute in Chelsea FC’s 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season despite being one of their most consistent players in a difficult campaign.
The Brazil international made the outlandish move to take to Instagram to have a subtle dig at the former Juventus manager following their cup triumph.
Manchester United are being linked with a potential swoop to sign Willian from the 2017 Premier League champions.
The South American forward won the Premier League title and the League Cup during Mourinho’s second spell in charge of the west London side.
Daily Record journalist McGarry confirmed that the Portuguese head coach is eager to sign the Brazilian playmaker to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford next term.
“Willian has been the subject of speculation for some months, mostly from Man United because Mourinho was a big fan when they were together,” McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast.
“He wants to improve his supply line for Lukaku.”
Manchester United controversially signed Nemanja Matic in a £40m deal from Chelsea FC in the 2017 summer transfer window.
