Red Devils have the opportunity to sign Chelsea forward Willian on a free transfer this summer. The Brazilian winger is out of contract at London club this summer after not extending his contract with Chelsea further.
Chelsea manager has already moved swiftly to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and with Frank’s current options available on the flanks including the likes of Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount, there is no space to accommodate Willian in the squad going into next campaign.
The Brazilian forward would surely be an excellent fit at Old Trafford with his pace, dribbling and goal-scoring abilities along with his trademark direct running and wing play which would prove to be useful for Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer going into next campaign.
Brazil international has made 330 appearances for Blues while scoring 59 goals in the process for the London club which can be deemed as a valuable return given that the Brazilian is primarily a winger.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not see Willian as fitting the mould that he’s looking for as he primarily pursues young transfer targets for his squad.
We’re not sure Red Devils supporters would agree with potentially turning down this proven talent on a free, but it also makes sense that the club might be favouring other options.
