Man Utd Target: I Would Have Quit Chelsea If...

A Chelsea star, who was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United recently, has admitted he would not still be at Stamford Bridge were it not for a significant change at the club.

Reports: Real Want EPL Star To Replace Modric

Brazil international Willian, who featured for the Selecao at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, has revealed that he found it difficult to play under previous Blues boss Antonio Conte.

With the winger's future being such a talking point in the window, he has now confirmed he would have left the London club if Maurizio Sarri had not replaced the former Italy manager.

"Would I be here if Conte stayed? No chance. No," the 30-year-old said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror

"I am here because I want to play for Chelsea. I will only leave if Chelsea wants me to."

The South American star also seemingly had a dig at how his former manager approached games.

"We have a lot of players with quality up front, players like Eden Hazard and Pedro. Players like that want to play football," Willian added.

"That's why Sarri talked about 'fun' football because he wants to build from the back. This is what we will try to do this season."
