Brazilian midfielder Willian has drawn a lot of interest this summer from Barcelona, however, former Chelsea manager Mourinho may be looking to reunite with the current Blues player at Old Trafford next season.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are preparing to bid nearly $80 million to add the Brazil international, who scored 13 goals in all competitions last season for Chelsea.


Jack Grealish became a hot commodity last season in the Championship, but with Aston Villa failing to rise to the Premier League and the club’s uncertain financial status his future with the team is very much in doubt.

Several Premier PL sides have expressed interest in Grealish, including Liverpool, who would have to reportedly be willing to come to terms with Villa’s $50-plus million evaluation of the attacking player.


Finally, Jack Wilshere will likely be staying in the PL next season with a new club.

A deal with West Ham United appears imminent, and the former Arsenal midfielder could join the Hammers as soon as Monday.

Wilshere’s contract expired with the Gunners in June after the 26-year-old spent 10 seasons at the Emirates Stadium.
