Man United want to sign star Chelsea attacker in January transfer window – report
Manchester United are keen on signing Willian from Chelsea in the January transfer window, say reports
Manchester United have made enquiries about the possibility of signing Willian from Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in trying to bring the Brazilian attacker to Old Trafford, but the Blues are said to be “reluctant” to do business in the mid-season transfer window.
The same report claims that Manchester United have officially “posted” their interest in signing the 29-year-old attacker in the January transfer window, but it seems unlikely that Chelsea would be willing to let him leave in the new year.
Willian has been in good form whenever called upon by Chelsea boss Antonio Conte this season, but the attacker has found his first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge to be significantly limited.
He has scored two goals and made three assists in the Premier League so far this term, but has only started eight of Chelsea’s 17 top flight games.
The Brazilian was in good form on Tuesday night as he scored once and set up two goals for his team-mates in the 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.
Chelsea return to Premier League action with a home clash against Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
