WILL HE GO? Chelsea braced for £30m transfer bid from Barcelona for Willian as fears over losing on free next year rise

BARCELONA are preparing a £30million bid

to finally land Willian.

 

The Spanish giants failed with a cash-plus-

player deal in January but will return this

summer for the Brazil forward.

LONDON, ENGLAND – JANUARY 27: Willian of Chelsea celebrates after scoring his team’s third goal during the FA Cup Fourth Round match between Chelsea and Sheffield Wednesday 

 

Willian, 30, has one full season left on his

Stamford Bridge deal and Barca will pile on

the pressure with their offer.

 

They know Chelsea risk losing him for

NOTHING in a year’s time when his contract

expires as he can move on a free transfer.

 

Barca are determined to add the Samba star

to their attack and maintain the pursuit of La

Liga and Champions League glory of this

season.

 

Barca’s bid of £50million – which included

Malcom heading the other way – was rejected

in January but his market value has dropped

because of his contract running down.

 

ONE YEAR LEFT

Maurizio Sarri has played Willian regularly

this season and he has scored eight goals to

help Chelsea get within sight of the Europa

League final and a top-four finish.

 

But failing to agree a new deal has given hope

of him finally leaving the club after six years

in West London when he has won the

Premier League title twice.

 

He has been a long-term target for Barca,

who also had an approach rejected last

summer before having another attempt in

January.

 

Willian also sparked interest from Chinese

teams over a lucrative move to the Far East

but remained in the Premier League.
