Manchester United favourites to land AWOL Willian

Chelsea star firmly in Mourinho’s sights

Manchester United are now firm favourites to sign Chelsea winger Willian this summer.

Following the Brazilian’s failure to report back to training on time our traders now make the move just 7-4 to happen.

Maurizio Sarri rubbished rumours of the Brazilian’s departure saying he was ‘very confident’ the 29-year-old would stay at Stamford Bridge.

But with two failed bids from Barcelona earlier this summer it appears Willian may have had his head turned.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “The Willian saga has taken a few more twists and a turn over the last few days but the upshot seems to be that he is edging closer to the exit door at Stamford Bridge.

We think Manchester United are in pole position to land the winger, with (Jose) Mourinho desperate for new recruits,”

Any move for Willian could result in Martial moving in the opposite direction. We’ve already seen a swap-deal happen in Italy this summer, but this could be one of the biggest the Premier League has ever seen.

Martial is now 9-2 to move south to Stamford Bridge.

Aitkenhead said: “Martial is another play who is moving towards the exit at his club and whilst Tottenham are the narrow favourites, a move to Chelsea is not out of the question,” 

The last week of the transfer window could just about to get very interesting.
