Football Transfers: Willian on his way out of Chelsea?
Brazil international Willian is most likely on his way out of Stamford Bridge after two heavyweights of European football are set to battle it out for his signature. On the other hand, Tottenham and Everton are fighting to acquire Barca's want-away star. Liverpool's Mane has been linked with a move to Spain and Luiz to Portugal. Here are today's top transfer rumors.
Manchester United are keen on acquiring the services of Brazil mid-fielder Willian. As per reports, they are willing to go head-to-head with Barcelona to land the £60 million Chelsea winger. Jose Mourinho has lost faith in Anthony Martial. And Willian, whom Jose had coached at Chelsea, is seen as his ideal replacement.
Colombia's defensive star Yerry Mina is the most wanted center-back in the world right now. He had put in a commendable shift, at the 2018 World Cup, where he scored three crucial goals for Colombia. Premier League duo Everton and Tottenham are circling around the 23-year-old, who is destined to leave Barcelona. Notably, he had joined the Spanish giants only in January this year.
Chelsea defender David Luiz has laughed at rumors linking him to the Portuguese giants Porto. For Luiz, the last 12 months have gone horribly wrong as he hasn't found a place in Conte's match-day squad. Interestingly, Luiz had played a key role in the title-winning campaign in the 2016/17 season. Despite his troubles, Luiz is keen to continue at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool forward Mane has been linked with a move to Champions League winners Real Madrid. However, when questions were asked to the Senegalese forward, he stressed that no contact has been made with the club for a prospective transfer. Mane responded saying "Real are a great team, but I am focused on my team, Liverpool."
