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.

  • Willian is my favourite player at the club. I was so disappointed when he wasn’t in the line up on Tuesday night. He’s got everything a top player needs. I think his mothers death has hit him hard and he’s taken time to recover. For some reason several Vital Chelsea members don’t rate him but I think he’s top class. Ray Wilkins has Willian in his all time Chelsea team. No opposition fullback wants him in our line up and have the job of trying to mark him. We’re lucky enough to have Hazard,Pedro and Willian,three players with that extra individual skill,pace and touch to make the difference against tight defences. It is widely regarded that a footballer is at his peak at 29,so why on earth would we sell him. Leaving London for an Industrial estate in Manchester is not an option for my favourite player.

  • He is obviously frustrated at lack of playing time, but next season we have the champions league back, so he will get more games, the only way he would go is if we got Sanchez .Wegner would never sell him to us , and we will not sell Willian to United .
