Willian spurned his old manager’s advances and signed on with the London club, after a season in which he was voted players’ and supporters’ player of the year. “There was interest, yes. It was from Manchester United, because Mourinho is there too," he told Globo Esporte.
“From other clubs I don't know but there are always some things on the internet. I'm glad to hear that there are clubs that admire my work.” When pressed on the possibility of moving to China, the Brazilian international was coy."
"I do not know if I would go or not. What I can say is that I'm happy at Chelsea, I feel very good there, like it's my home.”
