Willian has dodged questions about his Chelsea FC future after Brazil's exit at the World Cup at the hands of Belgium.

Apparently, his previous boss Jose Mourinho who is now managing Manchester United, is also interested in procuring his services.

Despite winning the league and cup double last season, the Catalan giants have concerns that their squad still lacks greater quality in depth and attacking flair.

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person".

"People speculate a lot and we see a lot of things on the Internet but this is not the time to talk about this", Willian said in a news conference. The Brazil global has been heavily tipped to leave Stamford Bridge since the close of the campaign and according to The Sun, they are prepared to beat Barcelona to the player's services.

The Brazilian refused to add to further speculations.

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

But, with the Blues snubbing a £50million bid from Barcelona for Willian, the Red Devils and Mourinho may have to offer more.

While Neymar has been dominating the headlines throughout the tournament, it is arguably Coutinho who has been Brazil's star man.

He's one of the many players rumoured to leave Stamford Bridge this transfer window and according to Goal, Sevilla is the latest suitors interested in the Belgian striker.
