'I had an offer from Manchester United' - Willian Jose claims Real Sociedad blocked Old Trafford transfer


The Brazilian striker, who spent the second half of 2020-21 on loan at Wolves, has also revealed he was a target for Barcelona

Willian Jose has claimed that he had an offer from Manchester United on the table in 2020 but Real Sociedad blocked his potential switch to Old Trafford.

United reportedly targeted a whole host of strikers in last year's winter transfer window amid a shortage of options up front, eventually managing to secure a loan deal for Odion Ighalo - who played for Shanghai Shenhua at the time.

Willian Jose has now revealed that he was one of the players on the Red Devils' original shortlist, while bemoaning a lack of support from the Sociedad board after seeing the proposed transfer fall through.
