Conte set to ban Chelsea star man’s move to Manchester United, but fellow forward may be sacrificed

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is understood to be unwilling to sanction the sale of Willian to Manchester United this summer.

The Daily Mail report that Jose Mourinho is a fan of the Brazilian forward—one of the few players who actually delivered for the former champions during their troubled 2015-16 season—and could well look to sign the attacker for Old Trafford.

However, the tabloid note that the deal is impossible, with Conte keen to keep hold of the versatile international regardless of any offers the club receive.


While Willian looks unlikely to leave the club this summer, his compatriot Oscar looks primed to leave the club this summer.

The incoming Italian coach is understood to be prepared to cash in on the 24-year-old former Internacional man, who has struggled to impress over the last two seasons at Stamford Bridge.

The tabloid note that Juventus are keen on signing the Brazil international, and with Chelsea open to offers for the playmaker, it would be little surprise if the attacking midfielder moved on.
