New Chelsea boss wants Brazilian to stay put
New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has no interest in selling Blues playmaker Willian to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
Mourinho was appointed United boss on Friday and is set to be given a huge budget to turn United back into title challengers, and has made his ex-Chelsea employee Willian one of his top targets.
Willian arrived at Chelsea in 2013 from Anzhi in Russia after just six months at the club.
The Brazilian cost £30million and in his second season at Stamford Bridge missed only two games as Chelsea won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho.
And in a season where the Blues have struggled, the 27-year-old has been a positive with 11 goals, his highest ever tally.
However, the Italian boss will reportedly allow his countryman Oscar to leave if a bid materialises from Serie A giants Juventus.
And Conte wants Juan Cuadrado to move between the two clubs as well.
The Colombian has spent the season on loan at Juve having struggled in his first spell at Chelsea.
And while Juventus are keen to make the move permanent, the incoming manager is said to be keen for Cuadrado to return to London for a second stab at the Premier League.
