According to a report in the Daily Star, Manchester United are confident of signing Chelsea winger Willian. Barcelona are also reportedly interested in the Brazilian right winger, but Manchester United believe that they are the front-runners. Brazil crashed out of the World Cup losing to Belgium, so it is expected that any transfer activity surrounding Willian will escalate now. Willian has been Jose Mourinho’s long term target as United have a plethora of players who can play on the left but don’t have anyone who is a natural right winger and Willian will fill that void.

Manchester United have already completed the signings of Fred, Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer. But Jose Mourinho knows that he needs to sign more players in order to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool. United fans will also expect their team to play much better football as Mourinho has been repeatedly criticized for his style of play.
