Manchester United plot surprise move for Chelsea's Willian


Manchester United have made contact over a sensational move for Willian, according to France Football.

The Chelsea star is expected to move on this summer after failing to agree a new contract with the West London club.

Willian’s deal will expire on June 30, and with no form of extension agreed he faces an uncertain future.

It’s reported that the Brazilian is wanting to sign a three-year contract – something that goes against Chelsea’s contract policy for players over the age of 30.

That has alerted a number of clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid to his services, with United now right in the mix.

It’s claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add some experience to his attacking line, and given the financial impact that the ongoing global pandemic is having on the sport, the idea of signing a player of his calibre for nothing is hugely appealing.

GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…

What a move this would be.

Manchester United are in need of attacking reinforcements, and while they’ve been linked with some pretty expensive options this could really be appealing.

Should the club move for the likes of Kai Havertz or Jadon Sancho, they’ll need some experience around them to help.

Willian would be perfect for that.

To sign a player of his calibre would be a real coup, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know it.

One obstacle is the three-year deal that Willian is after, and while that’s quite a commitment, it could prove to be a shrewd piece of business.
