Willian and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both want to join Manchester United – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Chelsea forward Willian are both keen on moves to Manchester United this summer, according to the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson.

Ibrahimovic, who is a free agent having left Paris Saint-Germain, has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Willian was one of the few positives of Chelsea’s otherwise disappointing season as he was widely praised for his displays. Man United boss Mourinho, who has worked with both Willian and Ibrahimovic in the past, is said to be interested in the pair as he finalises his transfer plans:

Willian is exactly the sort of player that Mourinho likes, namely, a workhorse who is willing to put the needs of the team above his own, but a player who is also capable of a moment of class.

Ibrahimovic has a reputation of being less focused on a team ethic but he remains a world-class talent and his capture would represent a coup for United.

But United are likely to be linked with a huge amount of players this summer and nobody will know for certain who Mourinho has his eyes on.
