According to a report from France Football (h/t Football.london), Manchester United have joined Tottenham in the race to sign Chelsea winger Willian this summer.

The 31-year-old Chelsea ace will be a free agent at the end of the season, with his contract on the verge of expiry. This situation has made him a hot prospect in the market. A host of clubs are eyeing a move, including Tottenham. (h/t Football.london)

Willian will be out of contract this summer

The presence of former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in the Spurs’ dugout has only served to intensify the speculations, with Willian praising the Portuguese and insisting the pair share a good relationship on multiple occasions.

However, now Tottenham will now face competition from Manchester United in the race to sign the Chelsea star, as per the report. The Red Devils have already established contact with the Brazilian’s camp. They are exploring the possibility of signing him, as they look to add more experience to the squad. (h/t Football.london)

Willian joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013. The Blues snapping him up from under the noses of our club. Since then, he has grown into a key player at Stamford Bridge, winning multiple titles and honours. The 31-year-old has been in decent form in 2019/20, scoring 7 goals and assisting 6 more in 37 matches in all competitions.

Signing the 31-year-old would represent a decent short-term signing for Tottenham, given his experience and proven pedigree. However, for our club to afford his wages, we may have to offload Erik Lamela, as per widespread reports.
