Man United fans think a swoop for aging Willian is a good idea

Jose Mourinho is supposed to come good in his second season in charge of clubs but Manchester United have finished their season without a trophy to show for their efforts after their 1-0 defeat against Chelsea.

One man who was part of the Blues squad has reportedly attracted Jose Mourinho’s attention with a view to a summer transfer – Willian.

However, the Brazilian wasn’t in the starting lineup at Wembley, will be 30 next season and has fallen out with Antonio Conte, who is reportedly the main reason that he wants to leave the club.

The playmaker has quality but any swoop would smack of Mourinho’s usual short-termism and after the acquisitions of Nemanja Matic and Alexis Sanchez, United do not need any more older players.

Mourinho is a short-term manager and there is a risk that signing aging players will leave quite the mess behind for his eventual successor to clean up.

Yet, the United fans don’t seem to see it that way…
