£60m Move For Chelsea Star Willian?

£60m Move For Chelsea Star Willian?

Manchester United are preparing a £60million bid to sign Chelsea winger Willian.

The Brazilian would be a welcome addition to the Portuguese manager's right side of the attack but whether he's a necessary buy or not is up for debate.

According to the Daily Mail, United intend to pounce on Willian's uncertain future at Chelsea by making an approach during the current transfer window.

And he's now set to come back in for the Brazil star, currently away on worldwide duty at the World Cup.

The 29-year-old won Chelsea Players' Player of the Year award for the second time in three seasons last term despite only starting just over half of the Blues' Premier League games.

Willian called United "one of the best teams in the world" when asked about his compatriot Fred's move to Old Trafford.

"So if he has that mentality, I don't ask him to say "I don't want any money", but if he goes there he must make sure he will die for the club".

In fact, it was a lack of playing time that resulted in Martial being overlooked by France head coach Didier Deschamps for the World Cup in Russian Federation, which only added fuel to rumours of his possible departure from the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United have reportedly slapped a staggering £100 million price tag on Anthony Martial in order to ward off potential summer suitors.

"So, I would be really happy for him". "We talked a little bit about that".
