Man Utd close in on agreeing €68million star signing

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been interested in Chelsea attacker Willian for quite some time and the latest reports seem positive for the Old Trafford club.

Last month, The Mail reported that the Red Devils are prepared to pay a fee of 60 million pounds to hire the services of the Brazilian playmaker.

Now, as per the latest update provided by The Sun this month, Man Utd are closing in on agreeing the signing of the Samba star for a fee worth 60 million pounds (€68million). The British outlet have mentioned that PL giants believe they will beat the competition from Barca and lure the former Shakhtar star.

Willian was fantastic under Mourinho in Chelsea’s 2014-15 title winning campaign. However, under former Juve boss Conte, the South American star has mostly been a bench warmer.

In the last campaign, he featured in 36 league games for the Stamford Bridge club but could only start 20 times and directly contributed in 14 goals (6 goals and 8 assists).

As far as his national career is concerned, so far, Willian has played 62 times for Brazil and he featured in every game for the five time World Champions at the World Cup 2018.

His current deal with the Blues will expire in 2020. In your opinion, should Mourinho sign the 29-year-old attacker to reinforce his offense?
