The Brazilian international joined the Blues in 2013 and as per the French source, he wants a three year extension but the Stamford Bridge outfit are only willing to hand him a two year deal. In such a scenario, the talks have stalled.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk attacker has won every major domestic prize with Chelsea and last season, he was an important player in the squad that won the Europa League under the management of current Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

In the 2015-16 season, the 69-capped international won the club’s POTY award and was rewarded with a pay rise worth worth £120,000-a-week (The Daily Mail) and the contract is now set to expire.

In the current campaign, so far, the South American attacker has directly contributed in 10 goals (5 goals and 5 assists) in 10 starts under the guidance of Frank Lampard.

Manchester United do need to reinforce their attack and a versatile player like Willian, who can effectively play in multiple offensive positions, would definitely be a good free signing.

The 31-year-old has got ample experience under his belt and has proved his worth in the Premier League. He mainly plays on the right flank, an area that must be improved in the summer.

In your view, should Man Utd secure the signing of Willian on a bosman this summer?
