Chelsea midfielder Willian reveals his agent held talks with Manchester United before he committed his future to the Blues.

Willian struggled under new boss Antonio Conte last season and was linked with a summer move away from Stamford Bridge.

"There were a few conversations with my agent. I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well," he told

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person. He has put his trust in me and in my work, and I was very grateful to him.

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea."

Willian says former boss Mourinho and Conte are two of the very best managers in the game.

"They are very different. Everyone has their way of working. Mourinho is a coach who likes more the ball practice, works the ball possession and makes short games," he added.

"Conte is a fantastic coach too, because he won everything at Juventus and has already won the Premier League in his first year with Chelsea. Each one has his merits.

"[Conte] is a coach who works hard every day, works a lot of tactics and the physical part. In the last season, he transformed our team when he changed the formation to 3-4-3. We managed to assimilate very well what he asked us in the training sessions and things worked out.

"I dream of winning more titles with Chelsea, win a Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup with Chelsea and be one of the best players in the world, as well as win titles with the Seleção (Brazil) and a World Cup."
