Chelsea forward Willian: 'I want to play for Jose Mourinho again'

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho United

Monday's news that Manchester United have opened talks with Bayern Munich over a potential £50 million deal for Jerome Boateng hardly came as a surprise.

In the wake of another poor pre-season result for Manchester United last night, Jose Mourinho has openly called on the club's CEO Ed Woodward to act, and act now.

The switch in number represents Rashford's third change in four seasons as a first-team player, first being handed 39 by Louis van Gaal in his debut year followed by the number 19 the following season.

His ability has convinced United boss Mourinho to give the iconic squad number to the striker, with the Portuguese admitting that Rashford has been interested in claiming it for his own for some time.

Leicester's Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld, of Tottenham, were thought to be their top targets until the Red Devils' attentions turned to the Bundesliga yesterday.

German media outlet Kicker, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Manchester United are facing competition from League Cup runners up Arsenal and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Willian and Mourinho won a pair of Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge and the Brazil global has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

Willian told reporters that he would only leave Chelsea if the club wanted to sell him, insisting he had not agitated for a move and wanted to stay in London.

Martial had left United's tour of the United States of America due to his daughter's birth but apparently upset Jose Mourinho for failing to return right away.

To me, he's one of the best central defenders in the world'.
