‘Would Be Another Sanchez’ ‘We Should Take Him ASAP’ Fans Discuss Claims That United Have Rejected Chance To Sign Chelsea Star

Manchester United have turned down the chance to sign Chelsea winger Willian, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian international is expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham also said to be keen on snapping up the player on a free transfer.

However, United will reportedly not be partaking in the battle to sign Willian with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to sign young, British talent instead. Supporters on Twitter were split on the manager’s decision to reject the opportunity to sign the 31-year-old:


There’s no doubt that Willian would have given the squad some added experience but he wouldn’t have fitted the transfer policy which is in place.

The Manchester club are now reportedly trying to sign homegrown players with potential who can go on and improve, rather than pursuing tried and test internationals who have already hit their peak years.
