Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that his club won’t be signing inform Chelsea forward Willian at the end of the season.
Mourinho and Willian worked at Chelsea in the Portuguese coach’s second spell at the club as the two won the Premier League and Capital One Cup titles.
In an interview with ESPN Brazil, the 55-year-old revealed that his former club are likely to reject any proposals for Willian.
Manchester Evening News quotes Mourinho saying:
“Who knows we can have a Brazilian in the squad next year, I don’t believe it will be Willian, because Chelsea won’t make it possible.”
There’s no surprise that Chelsea wouldn’t want to sell Willian in the form he’s shown in the second half of this season, especially a rival.
The Blues can’t afford to replicate the same mistake in selling Nemanja Matic to United as the club will be competing with the very best in the next campaign.
