Manchester United have made enquiries regarding the availability of Chelsea star Willian according to reports today.
The Brazilian has been out of favour since the arrival of Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge in 2016, with Eden Hazard, Pedro, and Alvaro Morata all being favoured up front for the Blues. Willian was afforded a chance to impress earlier this week in Morata’s absence, and took the chance with both hands, scoring one and creating two as Chelsea beat Huddersfield on Tuesday.
Although Willian has recently admitted he is happy at the club, according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have made enquiries regarding his availability.
They claim that while they aren’t actively looking to sell the winger, they would be willing to sell if they received a Ma mouth offer, although whether they would want to sell to Man Utd again is yet to be seen. Club officials are known to still be furious with the decision to let Nemanja Matic move to Old Trafford last summer.
The Blues have been linked with a number of players in recent weeks who would be seen as potential replacements for Willian, with reports linking Chelsea to making a big money move for Thomas Lemar, as well as Bayer Leverkusen’s Jamaican speedster, Leon Bailey.
