Brazil international Willian doesn’t seem to fit into new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s wing-back system and has struggled for first-team game time since the Italian’s arrival last summer.
Despite scoring 14 goals last season, Willian has just two this season and that has led the Express to believe that United boss Jose Mourinho is plotting big-money move for the 28-year-old either in January or the summer.
He was Chelsea’s best player by a country mile last season, so would the club’s supporters really go along with selling him to a direct Premier League rival? Well, it turns out they would, if they could get something in return:

Mourinho wants Willian? Give him
But ask for Martial in exchange

Willian – Martial swap
Take it or leave it

José Mourinho wants Willian from Chelsea which I'd accept. However get Martial in the deal

Willian for Mkhitaryan or Martial sounds decent. Both players got more end product than Willian. Mourinho retarded not to use Mkhitaryan.

Mourinho loves Willian because of his workrate but he's an awful player, imagine if we were able o take martial from them..

Jose want WIllian really? Yes please lets do a swap deal with one of Martial/Mikhitarian. He is all yours added bonus take Oscar too

Martial for Willian. Good deal for me

Unsure if we should sell Willian to Utd. Demand a major fee, or Martial in return would make it work

What do you think of the suggestion? Is there any way both clubs could come together to work such an ambitious transfer?
