But he loves Willian’s defensive work and is thought to be willing to make an exception if the winger is on the market.

Mourinho recently stated that he thought his chances of landing Willian would be be scuppered by his former club.

He said: “Who knows we can have a Brazilian in the squad next year.

“I don’t believe it will be Willian, because Chelsea won’t make it possible.”

However, Willian has just two years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and Blues may be tempted to do a deal if the player indicates he wants the move.

United have not done business with his agent, Kia Joorabchian, since fellow client Carlos Tevez left to join Manchester City in 2009.
