The talented Brazilian told sources he was on the verge of joining Mourinho at Manchester United cause he missed the Manager but paperwork stalled the move.
The Brazilian had to spend time on the bench last season due to the change in the formation hence enduring a difficult time under Antonio Conte.
Willian who was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year in Mourinho’s final season at Stamford Bridge was behind Pedro and Eden Hazard in the pecking order.
Willian reveals Jose Mourinho likes him so much and that was the main reason he pushed for a transfer away from Chelsea stressing that the trust the Portuguese has on him is what makes him do more in training.
“Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I’m very happy at Chelsea, he said.
