Jose Mourinho signed Willian back in 2013 in controversial circumstances when he was Chelsea manager.
With the Brazilian close to joining Tottenham from Anzhi Makhachkala – Spurs were in shock only to see Mourinho gazump them with a £30m bid.
Now the Portuguese wants to be reunited with Willian as he looks to turn around United’s fortunes once again, Starsport claim.
Willian has lost his starting shirt under Antonio Conte and Mourinho wants to use this opportunity to land Willian with a bid worth over £30 million.
Willian penned a new long-term deal with the Blues last summer aimed at keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2020, but with his reduced status this term, Mourinho is hoping to lure him to Old Trafford with a salary worth £200, 000.
