Blues midfielder Willian has said that he was the target of transfer interest from Manchester United last summer
Rumours surfaced that Mourinho wanted Willian with him over at United last summer and now he has now confirmed he was the subject of transfer interest from United.
“There was interest, yes. From Manchester United, because Mourinho is there too,” Willian told Globo Esporte.
“From other clubs I do not know, but there are always some things on the internet. I’m glad to hear that there are clubs that admire my work.”
Willian’s sparkling form from last season has not been replicated this term, with his peripheral role in Antonio Conte’s team sparking fresh doubts about his future at Chelsea.
The 28-year-old has is also rumoured to be a target of transfer interest from big-spending Chinese clubs and he appears to be open to the prospect of a move to the Far East.
“To make this decision, we end up thinking about our future, our children and family,” he added.
“I do not know if I would or not. What I can say is that I’m happy at Chelsea, I feel very good there, as if it were my home.”
