Reported Manchester United target Willian failed to make an impact in Brazil’s 2-0 win against Costa Rica on Friday in their second 2018 World Cup group game, and Red Devils fans don’t want their club to sign the 29-year-old ace.
The Daily Mail reported last week that Jose Mourinho was lining up a £60m bid to bring the Chelsea attacker to Old Trafford this summer, but his latest performance in Russia certainly hasn’t done himself any favours.
The forward was largely anonymous in the opening 45 minutes and was replaced by Douglas Costa at half-time, who went on to pick up an assist for Neymar’s goal in injury time.
Man United supporters, who have urged their club to sign another World Cup attacker described as “better than Perisic”, were quick to have their say on Willian’s latest display via social media, and while one said he’s “not even an upgrade on Mata”, another said “don’t ever sign Willian”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
