Manchester United have been in search of a quality attacking player this summer but will they be able to sign one before the deadline ends tonight?
According to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, Jose Mourinho has moved in with a surprising offer to hire the services of Brazilian international and Chelsea star Willian.
The Portuguese boss has already lured one key star from the Blues by signing Nemanja Matic this summer and it will be fair to say that Conte would not like to strengthen United further.
Willian was a key member of Mourinho’s Chelsea side that lifted the Premier League trophy back in 2014-15.
In the 2015-16 season, he was voted as Chelsea’s Player of the Year and after that, he signed a new deal with the club worth (Daily Mail) £120,000-a-week ($155,000-a-week).
Last season, under the management of Conte, the 29-year-old attacking midfielder scored 12 goals and provided 5 assists in 41 appearances (all competitions). This season, he has provided 1 assist in 3 PL outings so far.
As per the provided Sun link, the Samba star will likely cost around 35 million pounds.
