Premier League transfer gossip hotting up
Chelsea playmaker Willian is an even-money shot to join Manchester United this summer.
The Blues ace has reportedly been an Old Trafford target for some time and that interest has now intensified following the Brazilian’s reported rift with Antonio Conte.
The 29-year-old replaced the Italian with a series of cup emojis in an Instagram post following Chelsea’s FA Cup Final victory over United at the weekend.
Conte may not be at Stamford Bridge for much longer himself. But that hasn’t stopped the strong support for Willian making his own summer switch.
AC Milan are considered his second most likely destination at 9/4, ahead of Real Madrid at 10/3 and Barcelona at 7/2.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain are the longest priced of the main contenders at 5/1.
“Willian’s future at Chelsea looks uncertain and if he does end up leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, the betting suggests his destination will be Manchester United where he would reunite with his former boss Jose Mourinho,” said Coral’s John Hill.
