GETTY Transfer News LIVE updates Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is back

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Manchester United are said to be targeting Chelsea winger Willian in a stunning £80m transfer deal which will also involve Frenchman Anthony Martial going to London.

"It isn't actively wanting to sell either player but knowing they are in a potentially comprisable position".

"People speculate a lot".

I'm following the information about Barcelona on the internet but I still do not know anything.

The Brazilian has been one of the most consistent performers for the Blues, and no wonder Jose Mourinho is eyeing one of his former players and monitoring his present situation.

The Brazilian has returned home after Brazil's exit from the World Cup in Russian Federation, and talks over his future may speed up now his involvement in the tournament is over.

But according to Catalan daily Sport, Willian is no longer a priority for the club this summer as Ernesto Valverde wants the club to bring in a more technical midfielder to replace Andres Iniesta.

Since his time as Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has been an admirer of Brazil worldwide Willian, and he feels he should sign him for the Red Devils this summer.

He still has a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2020 and has won the club's Players' Player of the Year award in two of the past three seasons.

Chelsea will likely be loath to lose Willian for anything other than a huge fee.

And Willian had praise for the forward, saying: "Coutinho has been playing a wonderful World Cup, and he helps us a lot".
