WILLIAN REVEALS FAILED TALKS WITH MANCHESTER UNITED AS HE SAYS 'I LIKE MOURINHO A LOT'


The Brazil winger had to fight to seal his first-team place under Antonio Conte and admits his agent held talks with the Red Devils over a move.

Chelsea star Willian has revealed how he almost clinched a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United before committing his future to the Blues.

The Brazil international endured a tough start to life under Antonio Conte, after being named Chelsea's Player of the Year in Mourinho's final season at Stamford Bridge.

Pedro and Eden Hazard were the new manager's favoured partners for Diego Costa up front, with Willian often relegated to the bench.

Despite netting a respectable eight times in the Premier League the winger was linked with a move away, with United appearing as one of the most likely destinations.

But while he admits talking with the Red Devils, Willian affirms that he is now content with life in west London.

Willian told Goal that, "There were a few conversations with my agent. I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well."
