Chelsea getting closer to signing PSG star. Here’s what it means for Man Utd

Last January and the summer before, Manchester United were strongly linked with the signing of Chelsea midfielder Willian. Unfortunately for the Red Devils, Chelsea stood their ground and elected to keep the midfielder at Stamford Bridge. Now, however, it appears executives at Old Trafford may get their wish.

Reports out of France indicated Chelsea is engaged in talks to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas Moura. Le 10 Sport believes Chelsea will part with Willian, should they successfully acquire their target. Having made only 17 starts last season, and just 15 appearances this campaign, it appears that Willian will not be able to advance his career under Antonio Conte.

Some reports suggest he could be headed to China, but Jose Mourinho will, no doubt, take a close look at his availability. The Portuguese manager is obviously a big fan of Willian, and from all indications, he’s not too keen on Martial, which means Willian could be coming to United to take Martial’s place in the team.
