Home » EPL, Latest » Revealed: United rejected the chance to sign both Willian & Ozil

Manchester United had the chance to sign Mesut Ozil and Willian – but turned down the pair of them.

David Moyes was offered Ozil for “substantially less” than the £42.4m fee Arsenal paid this week.

Real Madrid were trying to raise the cash to sign Gareth Bale and although United liked Ozil, they were not interested in making a move.

They have faith in Wayne Rooney, despite his desire to leave Old Trafford, and also rate Shinji Kagawa as a more-than capable back-up.

Chelsea ended up gate-crashing Tottenham’s move for Brazil midfielder Willian but he apparently was keen to join United, according to one national newspaper.

Anzki Makhachkala offered Willian to the Red Devils but, again, Rooney was Moyes’ no.1 option for the no.10 shirt.

Willian eventually signed for the Blues for £30m.
