Newcastle United have been hit with another blow in the transfer window, as key target Kenedy has been valued at £20 million by parent club Chelsea, according to reports from the Chronicle, which is likely to deter the Magpies from revisiting negotiations.

Mourinho, who brought the Brazil worldwide to Stamford Bridge from Shakhtar Donetsk five years ago, is said to be after at least one attacking player this summer.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho reportedly retains an interest in Willian and will push ahead with a £60m offer for the Chelsea forward.

According to the Daily Mail, United are ready to lodge a €60 million bid for the Brazilian worldwide.

Willian is a part of the Brazil side taking part in the World Cup and also took part in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland, their World Cup opener.

The winger's current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in two years, and after the 2017/18 season, he may be tempted to leave his club - Willian started on the bench for much of the second half of the campaign, although he did contribute to 25 goals in 55 matches across all competitions. I hope he does well at Manchester United. He goes to one of the best teams in the world. I hope he does well at Manchester United.

'He is very happy to come to the Premier League to play.

Willian would still demand a large amount of money as wages and maybe we would need Ed Woodward to do a bit of his magic and drive the price down for the Brazilian as we look to bring more players for our attack.
