United favorites to agree signing of $146,000-a-week star – Report
Manchester United’s link with Chelsea’s Willian is growing stronger by the day as the Red Devils seek to reunite the Brazilian with Jose Mourinho.
Willian is reportedly frustrated by the limited role he played under Antonio Conte last season with a departure from Chelsea expected, if the Blues’ current boss remains at the helm next season.
The Brazilian, a $146,000-a-week star, will not have a shortage of suitors, should he want to leave Stamford Bridge. However, are reporting that Old Trafford will most likely be the player’s next destination.
Bookmakers have reportedly made Manchester United the clear favorites to sign Willian as Mourinho eyes a move for another midfielder after the arrival of Fred on Thursday.
The Red Devils were previously 6/4 favorites to land the 29-year-old, but those odds have now been slashed down to 11/8.
Bayern Munich are also in the running for Willian’s signature but the German side remain behind United with odds of 10/1.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-favorites-to-agree-signing-of-146000-a-week-star-report/
