Willian Chelsea

Manchester United target Willian has insisted that he is happy at Chelsea despite talk of a move away.

A number of clubs are said to be interested in the Brazilian forward, with a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United frequently mentioned.

However, the 29-year-old has told Globo Esporte: “[Leaving?] No, I’m back to England. I’m very happy at Chelsea.

“I’m very happy living in London.”

Barcelona and Real Madrid were also tipped to make offers for the winger, who played in all five of Brazil’s games at this summer’s World Cup.

Willian becomes the second Chelsea player in a matter of days to commit his future to the club, after fellow Brazilian David Luiz brushed off talks of a departure. Luiz has been linked with Napoli and Arsenal.

Recent reports suggested that Chelsea were set to accept an offer from United for former Shakhtar Donetsk man Willian, but it appears his heart is in London.
