Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Chelsea midfielder Willian are both reportedly keen to follow Jose Mourinho to Manchester United. The record-breaking Swedish striker and the diligent Brazilian are said to be open to the idea of joining the controversial coach at Old Trafford, where he signed a three-year deal on Friday, 27 May.
Ibrahimovic, 34, recently revealed he already knows where he will play next season after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the last campaign. He would expect to command a salary of about £220,000 a week, according to The Guardian.
Willian, meanwhile, was a key component is Mourinho's most-recent Premier League title win at Chelsea and the Portuguese coach reportedly wants him to take up the right-sided midfield role in his new-look United side. The Brazilian is thought to be open to the idea of swapping Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford.
Mourinho did not directly address the issue of transfers in his first interview as United's new manager with the club's in-house TV channel MUTV. He did, however, reveal his determination to restore belief in the United squad.
"I think we can look at our club now in two perspectives. One perspective is the past three years and another perspective is the club history," he said of his challenge at United.
"I think I prefer to forget the past three years, I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now. I think what the fans are expecting me to say is that I want to win. I think what the players need to listen [to] is I want to win. And more than that, I need the players and supporters to feel that I say that but I think we can really. It's not just to say what I say.
"So, yes, I want to focus on the history of this giant club and give what I have and what I don't have, so I will give absolutely everything to try and go in the direction we all want."
