Manchester United have reportedly added Chelsea winger Willian to their shortlist of targets for the current transfer window.

The Brazil international has been one of the Blues' most consistent performers this term but he is said to have developed a shrewd relationship with manager Antonio Conte in recent months.

Willian was only a late substitute during the 1-0 FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United on Saturday and shortly after the game, he blocked Conte out of a picture posted on Instagram showing the Cup celebrations.

According to Sky Sports News, the Brazilian is now considering his future at Stamford Bridge and he could be prepared to leave the Blues, should Antonio Conte remain at the helm.

Conte's own position has been in doubt over the past few months and a decision over his future is likely to be taken in the coming days with Luis Enrique touted as the favourite to replace him.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has spoken fondly about Willian on a number of occasions since leaving the Blues and the club are said to have failed with an approach for his signature last summer.
