Is this the big clue Chelsea star Willian will complete move?

And the bookies have cut the odds on Willian joining United with Mourinho tipped to splash the cash in the coming weeks.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is said to be set on luring a Brazil global to the Red Devils, who are believed to be willing to pay £60 million (R1 billion) to secure his signature.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a move to bring the Brazilian attacker to Old Trafford for a reunion with his former manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has reportedly been chasing Willian since his arrived at United in 2016, but is now said to have stepped up his interest in the 29-year-old, with whom he worked at Chelsea.

Mourinho, who brought the Brazil global to Stamford Bridge from Shakhtar Donetsk five years ago, is said to be after at least one attacking player this summer.

Reacting on Fred's switch to the Premier League before the commencement of the on-going 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation, the Selecao top star described the Old Trafford side as "one of the best teams in the world".

The Brazilian scored 13 goals and provided 8 assists for the Blues, despite an average season for the side.

We have signed Fred and Diogo Dalot, so it makes sense for us to work on our attack and get the team prepared for the upcoming season.

United are still hoping that they can tie the Frenchman down to a new contract, with fears that he could come back to haunt them in the future.

If they are to complete the signing, the Express says it could allow Arsenal to swoop on Steven N'Zonzi, who would thus return to the Premier League.
