7. Willian To United

José Mourinho seems to enjoy linking up with his old players at new clubs, and if rumours are to be believed, one of the key targets to bolster his Manchester United squad seems to be Brazil and Chelsea winger Willian.

Willian has been a fine player for Chelsea since making a move to the London club back in 2013. He's scored 25 league goals in 166 appearances and has proven himself an excellent chance creator and set piece specialist, but fell a little out of favour last season and was an injury time substitution when Chelsea won the FA Cup.

The Brazilian, who is valued at around £50-60 million, will be 30 years old when the next season gets underway and is approaching the final years of his career, but a move to United could represent a last big challenge for Willian and he's exactly the sort of hard-working player that Mourinho likes to build his teams around.
