Manchester United reportedly make Chelsea's Willian their top summer transfer target.

Manchester United are reportedly 'confident' of signing Chelsea star Willian following Brazil's exit from the World Cup.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has made the 29-year-old his top summer transfer target, according to The Sun.

United are said to be locked in a two-way battle for Willian with Spanish giants Barcelona, with both clubs offering £60m for the Brazil international.

Willian previously vowed to focus on Brazil's World Cup campaign before resolving his club future, but after his country's defeat to Belgium in Russia, the Red Devils are said to have stepped up their efforts to recruit him.

The winger has spent the last five years at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League title twice and both domestic cups.
