Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is intent on signing Chelsea attacker Willian this summer, according to a report.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly intent on signing Chelsea attacker Willian this summer.

Willian raised further questions over his future at Chelsea when he blocked Blues manager Antonio Conte out of a picture from the club's FA Cup celebrations at the weekend.

The 29-year-old scored 13 times and registered 12 assists for Chelsea during the 2017-18 campaign, but he was left out of the starting XI against United in the FA Cup final amid suggestions of a rift with Conte.

Conte's future at Stamford Bridge remains in doubt despite winning the FA Cup trophy at the weekend, and according to Sky Sports News, Willian is determined to leave London this summer.

Red Devils boss Mourinho still has a close relationship with the Brazilian following their time together at Chelsea, and the report claims that the 20-time English champions will push hard to sign the attacker.

United are expected to spend big this summer in an attempt to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.
