He brought him to Stamford Bridge when in charge of Chelsea back in 2013, and now Jose Mourinho is trying to convince Brazilian star Willian to leave the Blues and join him at Manchester United.

Willian, who earns £110,000-a-week, has not featured as prominently since Antonio Conte took charge of Chelsea and according to the Daily Express could be tempted to leave if the Premier League champions pursue other targets.

The 29 year-old winger was one of the few players who seemingly sided with Mourinho during his controversial exit from the club towards the end of 2015, and played a key role in their title win the same year.

Manchester United on the other hand could be chasing replacements for the likes of Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini, both of whom are out of contract in the summer and could leave on free transfers.

The Red Devils reportedly tried to sign Willian during the summer but were rebuffed in their approach. Reports say that Chelsea would rather sell the Brazilian abroad, for example to the Chinese Super League.

They will be unwilling to sell to a direct rival in United, especially after the success of Nemanja Matic who swapped Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford a few months back.
