Willian open to a move to Manchester United .
Chelsea winger Willian is reportedly open to a move to Manchester United this summer, according to the Daily Mirror. The Brazilian is keen to reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho, with whom he had a close relationship, after falling out with current Blues boss Antonio Conte. The 29-year-old could still depart Stamford Bridge even if Conte were to leave the club, as he is expected to, and talks have already begun between Chelsea and United chiefs. Willian will be a big miss to Chelsea as he contributed 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season, these numbers will have to be replaced if he leaves the club. Chelsea sold midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United last summer and would be reluctant to let another big player leave for Old Trafford but the funds they receive could significantly improve their budget for this transfer window in compliance with FFP rules.
