Willian admits he has spoken with Manchester United about a potential move but insists he was not close to leaving Chelsea.
The Brazilian was wanted by Jose Mourinho when the Portuguese first joined Old Trafford.
Willian started just 15 games in the Premier League last season and admits he gets upset when he is not selected by Antonio Conte.
But the 29-year-old insists it is not enough to force him to leave.
‘I had contact with Manchester United but I was not close to leaving,’ Willian told UOL.
‘Of course, sometimes you get upset that you’re not playing.
‘But that doesn’t mean you do not like the club or the people who work there.’
