Willian on the verge of joining Manchester United

Manchester United have had a £67m bid accepted by Chelsea for Willian, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Star).

However, while the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek arrived back at training before their scheduled return date, Willian is almost a week late.

While the situation is far from ideal, Willian's proactive communication is in stark contrast to the actions of Diego Costa last summer.

The Brazil worldwide, 29, has been heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer.

With Alderweireld's contract due to expire next summer, Manchester United will be hopeful of signing him on a reduced fee, but Tottenham will be well aware of the implications of selling him to a direct Premier League title rival.

The Catalan club tried their level best as they had bid three times for the winger but they were rejected by the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The 29-year-old has been a primary target for the position this season, along with Internazionale's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, and Man United could be getting their man.

The west London club have been adamant the forward is not for sale with Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois' future also uncertain.

"I'm back to England".

"I am very happy at Chelsea and I am very happy living in London", he is quoted by the Mirror as telling Globo Esporte.

However, Willian is set for a new era at Chelsea, following the arrival of Maurizio Sarri.
