KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Manchester United were keen on signing Willian last summer and, though they failed to make a bid, interest remains strong over at Old Trafford.

While Willian is away at the World Cup, his attention will exclusively be on his side's quarter final encounter with Belgium, but there is no doubt that he's seen some of the latest rumours attached to his name.

According to the report, Argentina star Messi and Uruguay striker Suarez want a complementing player who can deliver the ball quickly into the centre of the pitch from the wing so they can do their thing.

'People speculate a lot.

"I have seen some speculation about Barcelona on the Internet, but this isn't the time to talk about that", he said at a press conference with the Brazil team.

The Red Devils' manager Jose Mourinho made the Chelsea winger his No. 1 summer target and is competing with Barcelona to seal a £60million deal.

For now, Willian, who worked under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge previously, has a contract with the Blues until 2020.

But Ernesto Valverde is going to return with an improved figure as he looks to add an extra dimension to his attack this summer.

With the Brazilian and the Blaugrana reaching an agreement, it is now just for the two clubs to reach an accord before the player officially becomes a Barca player. He was the one who brought him to Chelsea and he even had to lose star man Juan Mata for it.

And Willian had praise for the forward, saying: "Coutinho has been playing a wonderful World Cup, and he helps us a lot".

"I am friends with him at the club but he is on his side and I am on mine, and I hope I can get the better of him".
