So Mourinho keeps asking Willian to come to United. He wants to play for Mourinho. But the issues may be about money; he is a player who is 30 on transfer deadline day, and who would command an OTT transfer fee. Plus, the fact that the source of Willian's disgruntlement at Chelsea was Antonio Conte - and he is gone. Willian is loved by Mourinho because he is a forward that will also do his work tracking back. At a time when we have only one potential first team player through the door, I'm maybe too anxious to see us bring in someone of quality. Anyway what does JoMo say of Willian? "He is top. He is the top of tops." And what about Willian now? "He is the best manager I have ever worked with. We have a good relationship. We are friends. "Sometimes we talk, we text, we send messages to each other on WhatsApp. "He is a great manager. I really enjoyed working with him." He smiles and nods as he adds: "I hope I can work with him again someday." Has he had an offer from United? "I don't know if there was an official bid [from United] but some things have happened. "But Mourinho talks to my agent all the time. He says, 'bring him, bring him'. "No he has never called me about it, but he always sends me messages." BUT... "I am very happy at Chelsea, I want to stay at the club. I also like living in London, it is an amazing city and my family have adapted well. "So, yeah, I intend to stay at Chelsea." Hmm. Maybe that's him getting back 'on message'? Well perhaps the rest might show there is meat on his 'i'm staying' comment. On the new manager Sarri, he laughs as he says: "I hope he is not like Conte! No, I'm kidding. "Conte was a very difficult manager to work with. His philosophy, his way of dealing with things is very complicated. "There were a few games... sometimes we just did not understand. There were to times I got substituted and went straight to the dressing room. "It was hard to work with him. But in life, we learn from these kinds of things. We learn so much from difficulties. "There were two years when I stayed on the bench in so many games, coming in later in the game. But this is I the past. "The important thing now is to talk about Sarri. From what I've heard, I'm sure he is a great manager, who does a great job with the team. "I have high expectations ahead of working with him." On Conte, again... it's clear he doesn't like him. "I don't know, sometimes the manager doesn't like you. I don't know if any of you have been in that situation before. "You just feel that the manager doesn't like you but he has to use you sometimes. You didn't do anything bad, but he doesn't like you." He refers to Diego Costa being fired by Conte by text. "I was in Australia with Brazil, and Diego texted me, he said, 'I'm leaving. Conte said he doesn't need me any more'. "I said, 'what do you mean' and he said, 'he texted me saying he doesn't need me on the team any more and i'm not supposed to go back'. "But you don't lose a player like Diego Costa. It was a difficult situation."
