Transfer Lookup: Willian to leave Chelsea?! Off to Manchester United?!

The twenty nine year old Brazilian playmaker has been in a marvelous form since the last couple of weeks. In the Winter Transfer Window, there was a wild speculation on a possible move to Manchester United which did not happen. However, as he is getting older, Chelsea might want to get him off the books and it is understood that he will part ways with the Blues.
Jose Mourinho is an acolyte of the player and would love to have him in the squad but it will be interesting to see if Antonio Conte decides to sell another crucial player to Manchester United after Nemanja Matic.

Matic has been crucial for the Red Devils time to time and he played a huge role in Manchester United’s win against Chelsea last weekend. This can be considered as a failure for Chelsea as they let the Serbian go for Bakayoko who has not proved to be a worthy signing yet. Thus, selling another player like Willian will be too risky for them.

Willian is valued at £ 28.80M and it is understood that the Red Devils can have to pay upto £45M to sign the midfielder. Jose Mourinho stated that he needed a midfielder and Willian can certainly be one of the options for him. The Brazilian still has two years left on his contract as his contract ends in June 2020 and the upcoming Summer Transfer Window can be crucial for them if they want to offload him.
