Man Utd boss Mourinho ‘confident’ of landing £60m Brazil star

Jose Mourinho could be set to secure a reunion with a £60m Chelsea star this summer, if reports are to be believed.

The latest rumour suggested that Manchester United are interested, but that Barcelona would offer up to three players to bring the price down, including Andre Gomes, Rafinha and Paulinho.

Talking about his future, Willian admitted he has heard about the link but is unsure whether he will leave Chelsea or not.

According to The Sun however, Mourinho may finally get his wish for a reunion. The club ‘believe they will land’ the Brazilian now he is out of the World Cup, and Chelsea have placed a £60m valuation on him.

Willian is Mourinho’s ‘No 1 target’, with the manager ‘having lost faith in Anthony Martial last term’.

It was previously claimed that Chelsea will let Willian join United if they receive Anthony Martial as part of any deal that would see the Brazil international move to Old Trafford.

United were waiting for Willian’s World Cup campaign to end before launching a serious bid, and are now ready to swoop.
