Manchester United are interested in a deal to sign Chelsea FC forward Willian to improve their options on the wing, Sky Sports reporter Adam Bate has claimed.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move to sign the Brazil international over the past few months after Willian fell out with ex-Chelsea FC boss at the end of the season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho worked with Willian during his second spell in charge of the Old Trafford outfit after the Portuguese head coach brought the Brazilian to the Premier League from Russia in 2013.

Willian has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup at the west London side but a change of management could present the Brazilian with the opportunity to make a fresh start.

FC Barcelona have already made a number of attempts to sign Willian before the La Liga champions finalised a deal to sign Bordeaux forward Malcom to improve their attacking options.

Sky Sports reporter Bate claimed that Manchester United are interested in Chelsea FC’s Brazilian winger amid continued surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge.

“There is the mention of Willian,” Bate told Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast. “It is a lot of money for someone his age. It suggests the right side is something they haven’t solved.”

Chelsea FC have signed Napoli midfielder Jorginho and veteran England goalkeeper Rob Green this summer.
