Rumours broke out late last season that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was plotting a move for Willian this summer and the 29-year-old Brazilian has now admitted Manchester United held talks with his agent.
“There were a few conversations with my agent. I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well,” Willian told Goal.com.
“He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person. He has put his trust in me and in my work, and I was very grateful to him.
“Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I’m very happy at Chelsea.”
