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.
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
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
Willian also sparked interest from Chinese
teams over a lucrative move to the Far East
but remained in the Premier League.
