Lurking in the media this morning is the insinuation that Jose Mourinho has his eyes on a Chelsea player, as a possible summer recruit.

The Chelsea player in question is somebody who has, previously, been mentioned in transfer tittle-tattle as being a Manchester United target.

But, according to the media vehicle ESPN, Jose is eying up Willian as part of his summer rebuilding plans.

Last season, Willian was probably the outstanding player in Jose Mourinho`s ill-fated last season at Stamford Bridge. This season things haven`t quite gone to plan with the 28-year-old Brazilian seeing his season interrupted by the sad death of his mother.

Nevertheless, Willian despite starting just thirteen Premier League matches has scored ten goals in all competitions including a very welcome brace in the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur, on Saturday.

Now whether Willian is part of Antonio Conte`s long-term plans only the boss would know, but if Willian is seen as nothing more than a squad player surely we`re not foolish enough to sell him to Manchester United and bolster a Premier League rival`s squad!

But what are your feelings about Willian?

Do you see the Brazilian as part of Antonio Conte`s long term plans or do you see him as nothing more than a squad player?

Here at Vital Chelsea we`d be delighted to read your views in our comments facility.
