The Brazilian player had been a lon-time Blues target.

But it seems that the Blaugrana hve dropped their interest.

Barcelona have reportedly ended their interest in signing Chelsea forward Willian and will now focus their efforts on re-signing Paris Saint-Germain‘s Neymar. Willian’s contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season and Chelsea are yet to agree on a new deal with the 32-year-old.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have turned down the opportunity to sign the Brazilian on a free this summer and have decided to move elsewhere in their search for a winger. The newspaper report claims that Barcelona are now interested in re-signing former forward Neymar, although there is a concern that his arrival could affect the development of academy graduate Ansu Fati.

Atletico Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow are reportedly interested in signing Willian but the forward’s preference is said to be a move to Spain, should there be no new deal with Chelsea.
