Man United miss out on Willian

Manchester United have had a quiet Transfer Deadline Day as Jose Mourinho made sure to do most of the hard work earlier during summer.

The Portuguese tactician would like to have added an extra player or two but the overall United’s dealings in the market have been described as successful.

The Red Devils watched rivals run around all over the place trying to secure some last-gasp signings, whereas they also made an attempt to sign Chelsea winger Willian, according to The Sun.

Mourinho submitted an eleventh-hour bid to sign a player he managed at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea ruled out another sale of a senior player to direct league rivals.

The Blues did not want to repeat the Nemanja Matic mistake which resulted in the 29-year-old Brazilian staying in London eventually.

Willian was also on Barcelona’s radar this summer before the Catalans decided to swoop in for Dortmund star Ousmane Dembele.
