An Old Trafford source said: “Jose is still interested in him. The club had a sniff last year but Matic was the only possibility.
“He does not have long left on his contract. The boss is a huge fan of his, he is always pull of praise.
“God knows where this leaves the rest of the wide players at the club but it cannot be good for them.
“He is a fantastic trainer with a great attitude towards his football according to Jose.”
Willian wants to sit down with Chelsea at the end of the season for talks over a new contract.
But it is not known whether the Blues will be willing to give him bumper new terms.
It is also understood he could cost up to £60m despite his age.
