However, it's Manchester United who have stolen a march on their rivals as Jose Mourinho looks to reinforce his defence ahead of the season's curtain raiser this weekend.

The Brazil global is a long-term target for Mourinho at Old Trafford, having previously lifted the Premier League title together in West London three years ago.

The 29-year-old also revealed that the pair have been in regular contact via text message and Willian claims Mourinho has held talks with his agent to make it clear he wants to take him to Old Trafford. "So if we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us".

"He knows what I want, I know that he tries to do the best for me and I still have a few days to wait [and see] what is going to happen". Also, everything comes out on the internet, too.

Asked whether Mourinho has called him directly, Willian added: "No, he has never called me, but he always sends me text messages".

Willian told reporters that he would only leave Chelsea if the club wanted to sell him, insisting he had not agitated for a move and wanted to stay in London.
