Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Brazil international star Willian, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League side, who lost 1-0 to Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, have been linked with a summer swoop for The Blues’ winger.

The 29-year-old, who has 54 international caps for his country, scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists in 54 appearances in all competitions for Antonio Conte’s side this season.

Willian, who arrived at Stamford Bridge back in August 2013 following his reported £30m switch from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala, has netted 44 goals in 235 games overall for the club.

Chelsea’s David Luiz, Willian and Emerson Palmieri celebrate winning the FA Cup trophy.

However, the report suggests the Samba Star, who was only used as a late substitute during Chelsea’s FA Cup final triumph at the weekend, wants to leave The Blues if manager Conte remains boss beyond this summer.

Although there has been no formal offer from United for the player, The Reds Devils have been long-term admirers of the right winger, plus Jose Mourinho worked with Willian during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Willian is contracted at Chelsea until June 2020, and is valued at £28.8m, by transfermarkt.
