The hardworking winger came to epitomise the footballing ethos of Mourinho’s second spell at Stamford Bridge and was one of the club’s only committed performers as the Blues plummeted towards the relegation zone under the Special One, consequentially claiming Chelsea’s Player of the Season award.

Earlier this week, The Sun¬†revealed the new United gaffer is willing to shell out a whopping ¬£60million to seal a reunion with his former player – which would make Willian the Premier League outfit’s new club-record signing.

But according to London Evening Standard, Chelsea are ready to block any approach from their divisional rivals and hold a similar stance with any personnel Mourinho attempts to lure to Old Trafford.
