Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho drops subtle hint over transfer move for Chelsea ace Willian
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho drops a huge hint over Willan to Manchester United as he states that Willian a player with “outstanding qualities” as speculation mounts he will move to Manchester United.
The Brazilian ace has been in fine form for the Blues in recent weeks but has not always featured under Antonio Conte.
Rumours of a rift have increased after a number of occurrences – including one incident where Willian stormed off the pitch in Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final win over Southampton.
On the other hand, the 29-year-old enjoyed his best football under Mourinho whilst the Portuguese manager was at his second spell at the club.
The former Shakhtar attacker also revealed that talks had taken place between his representatives and Mourinho over a transfer last summer.
But rebuffing this, Willian explained he would never leave the west London side unless he was forced to.
Regardless, speculation has still grown over United making a move for the Brazil international as Mourinho looks for an out-and-out winger that fits his billing.
And to add fuel to the fire, Mourinho has now called Willian a player with “outstanding qualities”.
When asked about Brazil’s chances in the World Cup, he said: “I like very much the basic structure of Brazil, its tactical and mentality.
“There is a mixture between Brazilian natural talent, with a serious approach, physical, tactical.
“It is a team capable of defending well, allowing few goals, with a good support base.
“And then up front with Willian, Neymar, Coutinho and Jesus… All players with outstanding qualities.”
Mourinho also hinted last month that he is keen to add a Brazil player to his squad this summer.
“I worked with Brazilian players in every team I coached, and I enjoyed a lot,’ he said.
“Who knows we can have a Brazilian in the squad next year.”
