Willian wanted by Mourinho at Old Trafford

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is determined to lure Chelsea attacker Willian to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

The Special One has not hidden his public admiration for the 29-year-old, who has amassed 13 goals and a further 10 assists across all competitions for the Blues this term.

United are alleged to have failed to sign the Brazilian in each of the previous two summer transfer windows, but they appear set to make a fresh approach, as per The Sun.

Willian will have two years left on his existing deal this summer, and the Red Devils could be willing to pay as much as £60m for his services, regardless of his trailing age.

Despite the speculation, Willian has previously suggested that he has no ambition of leaving the Blues, and he would only consider an exit, should the hierarchy intend to sell him.

Manchester United suffered a shock 2-1 aggregate Champions League defeat to Sevilla earlier this week, and the focus is now surely on the FA Cup, where they take on Brighton in the quarterfinal on Saturday.
