WILLIAN

Manchester United still lead the way in their pursuit of the Chelsea midfield star, The Sun reports.

The Red Devils have been long-time admirers of the 29-year-old Brazilian, who has been one of the standout performers in a difficult campaign for the Blues in which he has netted on 13 occasions.

World Cup-bound, Willian – who has two years left to run on his Stamford Bridge contract – has apparently stated he will not discuss his future until after the tournament.

If United do indeed get their man, it could mean spell the end of Juan Mata‘s career in Manchester.

Chelsea’s fleet of foot midfielder is in demand.

PACO ALCACER

Southampton are ready to pounce for the Barcelona forward, should the Saints stay in the Premier League.

Mark Hughes’ men are embroiled in a fight to avoid relegation but the South Coast side are keen to land the 24-year-old attacker this summer.

Alcacer is very much a back-up to club legend Lionel Messi and the prolific Luis Suarez at Camp Nou, but has still chalked up six goals in all competitions.

The ex-Valencia man would provide welcome firepower to the St Mary’s Stadium side, however, the player himself is said to want to stay in Spain.

Alcacer has netted five goals in all competitions this term.

Alcacer has featured infrequently for Barcelona.
