Chelsea attacker Willian is having an excellent season, so it makes sense he’ll be linked with a number of clubs as hype surrounding the upcoming summer transfer window intensifies.
One of the sides he’s been linked with recently is Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho on the hunt for talent that can ensure they challenge for the English Premier League title next season.
With 13 goals and 10 assists so far this term, the Brazilian would offer plenty to the Red Devils, although at 29 years of age his long-term potential is limited.
A right-sided attacker, he could also help bring balance to United’s front four.
Man United fans though are definitely not keen on the links, believing that he is either too far into his career, a distraction when they should be focusing on other areas of the team or simply not the kind of winger they should be moving for.
Is he a player that can help take Mourinho’s side to the next level, or should the Portuguese be focusing on their defensive line?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
No Willian! Build a team, don’t buy it. Ready made players should be exceptions here and there and need to be from the absolut highest quality. After Matic and Sanchez we need some players ahead of their prime filling a position longterm.

Willian would be great, but his age is a legitimate concern. Could come back to bite #MUFC if a bunch of key players start to decline at the same time. I reckon Mahrez or Malcom would be better options.

Think we should start looking at younger players again. We haven't been very lucky with our recent 29 year olds except RVP..

Nope, we should be looking at a young dynamic winger

Nope, he never wanted a winger in the summer or winter window so why bother now. Plus he is over priced.

We need at least one central defender, a left back possibly, definitely a right back, a holding midfielder and a box to box midfielder all before another attacker in my humble opinion!!
