Transfer News LIVE updates Arsenal signings close Fekir to Liverpool Man Utd EXCLUSIVE

GETTY Transfer News LIVE updates Arsenal are also set to sign Lucas Torreira

United are believed to be prepared to pay up to £60m to land Willian and make him the second Brazilian to join the club this summer, following the signing of midfielder Fred last month.

Brazil will leave their base on Russia's Black Sea coast for the final time on Thursday to head to Kazan for Friday's game.

Conte is prepared to kick off Chelsea's pre-season on Monday after medical checks on Saturday, but it remains to be see if the Premier League and FA Cup victor will indeed still be in charge by then.

Could Lionel Messi put a halt to Manchester United's plans to sign Willian from Chelsea?

Joorabchian has been involved in transfer negotiations since 2006 and was part of negotiations which saw Willian move to Chelsea back in 2013 from the Russian club, Anzhi Makhachkala.

Manchester United have also been linked with Willian but it's unlikely that Chelsea will sell to a direct rival.

I'm following the information about Barcelona on the internet but I still do not know anything. "I'm trying to be focused on the Seleção".

These two players need someone according to the report who can deliver the ball quickly into the center of the pitch from the wing so they can do their thing.

When asked about joining his fellow Brazilians Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho at Camp Nou, Willian said: "Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality".

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.
