Chelsea star Willian could move to Manchester United because he wants to stay in England, reports say. The Brazil international is poised to become a free agent at the end of the season. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could swoop for the winger, whose time at Stamford Bridge is drawing to a close.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard remains a fan of Willian having played alongside the Brazil international during his own career.

But the Blues are now looking to the future and the Brazil international doesn’t fit in their plans for the long term.

Chelsea have won the Premier League twice since Willian arrived, in 2015 under Jose Mourinho and in 2017 when Antonio Conte ruled the Stamford Bridge roost.

But they’re poised to lose him on a free transfer having failed to give the Samba star the three-year contract he craves.

And the Daily Mail say he could now make a move to Manchester United, with the Red Devils interested in securing his signature.

It’s claimed that Willian wants to stay in England if possible despite also being linked with La Liga giants Barcelona, who failed to sign him 12 months ago.

“We'll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we've been hit. I know the club has announced a few numbers before.

"It's not for me to say here now we are going to have X amount because I don't really know.

“I don't really know how hard we have been hit. We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else.

"Let's see how quickly we can get our fans back into the stadium and of course the league position is going to be important for us this season. If we can get a trophy, the FA Cup or the Europa League.

"The Europa League will also qualify us for the Champions League, there's still a lot of uncertainty and these three or four months, every businessman in the world, every footballer in the world, I think everyone is still unsure what the effect will be."
