Manchester United Interested In Chelsea’s Brazilian Star: Why Mourinho Needs Him!

Manchester United who are looking for a summer overhaul this season has set their sights on Chelsea midfielder Willian. According to reports,  Mourinho is keen on reuniting with the Brazilian winger who has impressed everyone with his performance in the second half of the season. Chelsea has had a poor season after Conte guided them to the Premier League title in his first season and currently, they are on the verge of missing out in the top four race.

According to reports, United are confident that they can land him in the summer. It is believed that Mourinho wants to make some wholesale changes in the squad. Under Mourinho, Mata was sold to Manchester United and it has always been clear that Mourinho isn’t a big fan of the Spaniard. Mourinho believes that Mata’s work rate isn’t enough and he is a defensive liability while tracking back.

Willian, on the other hand, is known for his work rate as the Brazillian winger is always keen on tracking back and will be perfect for Mourinho as he often expects his attacking players to help out defensively.

It’s being said that Chelsea will demand something in the region of £30million  for the 29-year-old. Apparently, this was the actual price which Chelsea got him for 5 years ago. Willian has gone from strength to strength with the Blues and has made his name in the Premier League.

Willian was finding it tough in the first half of the season to start ahead of Pedro but slowly became the first choice ahead of him on the back of some strong performances. He was clearly Chelsea’s best player in the Champions League tie where they bowed out to tournament favourites Barcelona. Willian managed to influence almost every Chelsea attack and hit the post twice in the first leg. Witha little bit of luck the tie could have been much closer.

United this season have been solid at the back but it’s their performance upfront that has been questioned by the pundits and the fanbase. There seems to be no creativeness in the team and no desire to outplay the opposition. Willian can probably change that as he likes to play direct football and loves taking on defenders. He is quick and has a terrific work-rate and is a perfect Mourinho player as he can start quick counter attacks and can help the team out defensively as well. He is known for his driving runs and add to that his set-piece taking abilities, he will be a great asset to the Mourinho side.
