Manchester United open to letting Anthony Martial join Chelsea

  Manchester United open to letting Anthony Martial join Chelsea Manchester United winger Anthony Martial may only come to Stamford Bridge as part of a swap deal, according to the Independent. United boss Jose Mourinho would be happy for the Frenchman to leave for West London but he wants Brazilian winger Willian in return. Chelsea have been heavily linked with a bid for the 22-year-old, who has found himself out of favour at Old Trafford under the Portuguese. Mourinho and Martial have never been on the same page, however, the former Chelsea boss is a big admirer of Willian and has been ever since he signed the winger back in 2013. The deal would not be a straight swap, however, with a seven-year age gap between the two players, Chelsea would have to offer a player plus cash deal. With Blues owner Roman Abramovich looking to freshen up an ageing squad, this could be a deal that very much interests him.

Spanish coach set to hold talks over Arsenal job this week

  Spanish coach set to hold talks over Arsenal job this week Arsenal are planning to hold talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday over becoming the club’s next manager. Twitter: Arsenal having talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday. Executives who will choose new manager to replace Arsene Wenger… https://t.co/OCntt62Tpu (@SkyKaveh) Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol claims that the Arsenal Executives will also be meeting on Thursday to discuss who will land the job. Arteta has been heavily touted with landing the role at Arsenal since it was announced that Arsene Wenger would be leaving the club. It was revealed earlier this month that Wenger would be stepping down at the end of the season, after 22 years at the club. Despite a number of high profile managers being linked with the job, it appears as though Arteta is their first choice – despite having no previous senior experience in charge of a team. He has been a part of Pep Guardiola’s backroom team at Manchester City for the past two seasons, including their record-breaking title success this season.

The Colombian has flopped in the Premier League this season with just four goals in 23 appearances and will not be making a £43.5m permanent switch to Old Trafford after failing to impress Louis van Gaal.

Willian open to a move to Manchester United .
Chelsea winger Willian is reportedly open to a move to Manchester United this summer, according to the Daily Mirror. The Brazilian is keen to reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho, with whom he had a close relationship, after falling out with current Blues boss Antonio Conte. The 29-year-old could still depart Stamford Bridge even if Conte were to leave the club, as he is expected to, and talks have already begun between Chelsea and United chiefs. Willian will be a big miss to Chelsea as he contributed 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season, these numbers will have to be replaced if he leaves the club. Chelsea sold midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United last summer and would be reluctant to let another big player leave for Old Trafford but the funds they receive could significantly improve their budget for this transfer window in compliance with FFP rules.
