Manchester United have reportedly been in contact with Willian’s representatives to discuss signing the Chelsea forward on a free transfer.

 

The 31-year-old’s future is up in the air as his current deal expires on June 30 and the Blues are reluctant to grant his request for a three-year deal to stay.

The Brazil international is even hesitant to sign a short-term contract so he can play out the rest of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season amid concerns he could suffer an injury which hinder a move.

According to France Football, Manchester United have now contacted the player and his agent, Kia Joorabchian, to register their interest.

Paris Saint-German and Real Madrid are also said to be keen, but the Spanish giants are also reluctant to offer him a three-year contract.

The report states that the Red Devils want to add the experience of Willian to help Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

Given the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis, recruiting Willian for free is an attractive prospect for United

The winger admitted last month that while the uncertainty surrounding his future is proving to be ‘difficult’.

‘It’s a difficult situation because Chelsea offered me two years and they are not going to change what they offered. I said I wanted three more years,’ the winger told Brazilian outlet Esporte Interativo.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
