Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted Chelsea star Willian won’t join Manchester United in the summer because Chelsea won’t make it possible.
“I think that a team without a Brazilian isn’t a team,” Mourinho told ESPN.
“But also, a squad with three or four Brazilian athletes, depending on their profile, cannot make a great team too. I’m kidding!
“I think their talent is fantastic and the creativity of the Brazilian player cannot be measured.
“If a European team, like, very European, could have a Brazilian in their squad, it would bring a ‘Brazilian thing’ to the game and I think that’s very important.
“I worked with Brazilian players in every team I coached, and I enjoyed [them] a lot, everything they can give and also every problem they can create!
“But honestly, I enjoyed a lot, and who knows we can have a Brazilian in the squad next year.
“I don’t believe it will be Willian, because Chelsea won’t make it possible.”
