Manchester United have been linked with a move for Willian since quite sometime now. Earlier reports had suggested that Chelsea weren’t looking to sell their star man, but now, it looks like they might.
If Willian does come to Manchester, the club will definitely be boosted with the experience he has in the Premier League.
The Brazilian has been one of the most consistent performers for the Blues, and no wonder Jose Mourinho is eyeing one of his former players and monitoring his present situation.
The 29-year-old is currently plying his trade in Russia in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018. Despite the news that Chelsea may be willing to let him switch from London to Manchester, there is a severe blockage that could hamper the deal.

According to a report in the Telegraph , the FA Cup champions will only let Willian join the Old Trafford unit if Frenchman Anthony Martial is included in the deal.
Martial is unhappy under Jose Mourinho, and last month, his agent confirmed that the youngster is looking to move away from the club.
But United have the last say here, and it is also reported that they aren’t very keen to lose the talented youngster just yet. The Mancunian club could offer Martial a new offer, and hope he pens a new deal.
With fight for places very tight at the Premier League club, Martial needs to impress his manager and hope he stays in the reckoning.
Towards the end of last season, Martial’s inconsistency made Jose get miffed at the player, as he stated why Romelu Lukaku starts every game for United, and not the other forward players.
