After reporting back late for duty, after his World Cup break, due to a passport issue, it appeared after talks, all was well with Willian, Maurizio Sari and Chelsea Football Club.

However, despite that being the case, fresh speculation has emerged this morning, courtesy of the popular tabloid publication, the Mirror, that Willian could still be set to leave Stamford Bridge before the transfer window slams shut.

According to our referenced source, Manchester United are still keen to take the 29-year-old to Old Trafford.

However, according to our source, Manchester United are not looking to do a cash deal but are looking at a straight player swap with their French striker, Anthony Martial, moving to Chelsea with both players valued around the £75 million mark.

OPINION – Here at Vital Chelsea, on previous occasions whereby the possibility of Willian moving to Old Trafford has been suggested, we’ve been dead against the idea. However, we find the inference that Martial would be moving in the opposite direction intriguing. At 22-years-of-age, Martial has a full career ahead of him whilst in the famous red shirt of Manchester United he’s shown he has an eye for goal but, more importantly, the Frenchman would add some direct pace to the central point of our attack.

Therefore, I have to admit I’m edging towards doing the deal, but what are your views on a possible straight swap between the two clubs?

Is it something you’d look on positively or are you against it?

  • Roman should bite their hand off! No way is Willian at his age worth 75m. Chelsea fans know how he blows hot and cold form wise and although I believe he would have a good season under Sarri, how many more could we realistically hope for.
    Martial would be champing at the bit to get away from Jose and I believe, under Sarri could prove area steal. Personally I would make Sarri sit down and watch every video of Martial over the last two seasons. Let it be HIS decision if he feels he can do with Martial what he did with both Higuain and Dries Martins at Napoli. Both prolific goalscorers which is something Willian has never been.

  • In my own opinion, Willian should stay cos Willian is use to our statist and Martial in d other hand is good as Willian but can not just fit into Chelsea mostly wen there is problem of transfer in d club incase Hazard left Willian can take his place till next transfer window

  • please is a good development to bring Mati
    aa hazard and saha at the back of Morata is like hazard Oscar and mata at the back of Drogba please we Chelseafc fans we need it we are beging Chelseafc management to do so

  • I think this is the way to go coz Martial is an investment he is only 22 and considering the fact we do not have on fire strikers I say yes to the deal
