Man United eye £40m bid to sign Chelsea FC star this summer – report
Man United will consider a move to sign Willian from Chelsea FC this summer, say reports
Manchester United will consider a £40m move to sign Willian from Chelsea FC in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Brazilian attacker is being considered as a potential summer target for the Red Devils as Jose Mourinho looks to add some more attacking flair to his team.
Willian scored Chelsea FC’s opening goal before the Blues were pegged back and beaten 2-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.
According to the same report, Manchester United enquired about the possibility of signing Willian in the January transfer window, but a move failed to materialise.
Now, it is being claimed that Manchester United could make a fresh approach to try and land Willian in the summer, although it remains to be seen whether the Blues will sell to their rivals.
Chelsea FC already raised eyebrows last summer with their decision to allow midfielder Nemanja Matic to leave Stamford Bridge and sign for Manchester United.
The same report says that Willian is valued at around £40m by Chelsea FC, and that Manchester United would likely have to pay a premium for the Brazilian, who turns 30 later this year.
