Manchester United are entering a season from which great things are expected by the fans of the club around the world.
The new manager Jose Mourinho has already added the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to his squad and is close to landing a world record deal for Paul Pogba in the coming days.
However, one player who has snubbed interests from the Red Devils recently is Chelsea’s Brazilian winger Willian.
The 27-year old was the player of the season for Chelsea previous campaign in spite of their atrocious form throughout the season. However, it was reported earlier in the summer that Willian is unsettled at the Stamford Bridge and that he is looking for a way out.
It was immediately reported that Jose Mourinho was keen on a reunion with his former teammate ahead of the next season at Old Trafford.
But it is now understood that Willian will not be moving this summer after it was revealed that the 27-year old signed a new 4-year contract with Conte’s Chelsea and is ready to play a huge role in the club’s fortunes next season.
Speaking to the media after snubbing any interest from his former boss Jose Mourinho, Willian said, “I have a great relationship with Jose, but I am Chelsea. Of course, when someone like him is interested in you then you are happy.”
“But I signed the contract because I like being a Chelsea player and I see good things here. I signed a new contract and that shows how much I want to stay here. But the simple thing is that I want to win titles.”
“To win titles you have to improve and if we can do that then we have a great chance to win titles this season. We have the players to do this – and the manager,” he added.
The winger will surely play a huge role in Conte’s side next season on the right flank in the final third. He will have plenty of help from players around him unlike in the previous season and if he can keep up his good form from the last campaign, he will be a huge asset for the club in the next season.
Willian is currently one of the most important players for the new manager at the Bridge and there is hardly any chance of him leaving the club this summer. Do you think Willian should leave Chelsea in years to come?
