Willian was in fine form for Chelsea this season just gone, with the Brazilian midfielder bagging 13 goals and 12 assists in 55 appearances as he helped Antonio Conte secure his first FA Cup with the Blues.

Brazil forward Willian has instructed his agent to wait after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation before he can make his decision between Barcelona and Manchester United, according to reports in Spain.

The Brazilian is now with the national team for the World Cup and is expected to play in their quarter-final clash against Belgium.

The Brazilian refused to add to further speculations.

The 29-year-old made 36 appearances in the Premier League last season, starting 20 times and was used as a substitute in the remaining 16 games. "But now it is time for each of us to defend our corner and I hope to come out on top", Willian said at Brazil's training base in Sochi on Wednesday.

Manchester United are "confident" of signing Chelsea star Willian following Brazil's exit from the World Cup.

Chelsea parting with Eden Hazard and Willian during the summer transfer window would leave them needing to "buy a whole new squad", says Wayne Bridge.

"Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality", he told Standard Sport.

All three players have joined the club in the previous year but while record signing Coutinho will not be sold, Paulinho and Mina have been linked with moves away.

"I've not received any information about whether [Barca's interest] is true".
