Willian to Manchester United deal: Man Utd are confident on landing Jose Mourinho’s primary transfer target as we round-up the latest transfer rumours on Sunday, July 8.
Manchester United are confident of completing the signing of Chelsea forward Willian following Brazil’s World Cup exit, reports the Sun on Sunday.
United manager Jose Mourinho has made Willian his primary transfer target this summer and is locked in battle with Barcelona to secure his signature.
Could Lionel Messi put a halt to Manchester United’s plans to sign Willian from Chelsea?
Well, the Manchester Evening News claim the Barcelona legend is keen to link up with the Brazilian at the Camp Nou.
La Liga champions Barca are also thought to be interested in signing the £60m-rated Willian.
It remains to be seen whether a reunion with Mourinho or the chance to play alongside Messi convinces the 29-year-old to end his five-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
