Reports: Mourinho Planning To Raid Chelsea One More Time

Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning to raid Chelsea's locker room one more time this season.

Barca Agree Deal For Man Utd Target?

To the surprise of most at the time, the Portuguese tactician managed to lure Serbian Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford at the beginning of the campaign, and there are rumours he is going to try to sign one more Blues star.

According to the Daily Express, Mourinho is keen on bringing Brazil international Willian to the Red Devils in January.

The winger has apparently fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge since the arrival of former Italy manager Antonio Conte in the club's hot seat.

The former Juventus head coach is said to prefer to play two particular systems with his current Chelsea squad, and neither seems to suit Willian.

The 2016/17 UEFA Europa League champions are expected to have a fight on their hands in any pursuit of the winger, though, as Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in the player's services.

The 29-year-old has lost his place in the Brazil national team due to his lack of game time in London, and it is unlikely he will be recalled if he does not make his way back into Chelsea's starting XI.

Willian has made 18 appearances for the reigning Premier League champions this season, but has only played 904 minutes of football.
