Chelsea winger Willian has been reportedly linked with a move to Barcelona.
The Chelsea winger was a subject of interest from Barcelona two seasons ago. However, their transfer pursuit ended in defeat at that time.
What is interesting to see is that it has not forced Barcelona to call it quits and they are likely to go in for him again.
The last time Barcelona wanted to sign Willian, they were willing to offer Chelsea 70 million pounds plus Malcom. However, Chelsea turned down the offer.
Willian is now at the end of his contract at Chelsea. The Blues have a policy of offering one year contract at the club to players who are 30 years or older. Hence, Willian has reached a stagnant point in the contract talks with Chelsea. He wants a longer deal.
This has given Barcelona hope that they can sign the experienced winger. Moreover, unlike last time, they will not even have to pay any money to get him to join the Nou Camp.
As for Willian’s current boss, Frank Lampard, the Englishman wants to keep him at the club.
The word isn’t ‘no-brainer’ because I can’t get involved in the money, that’s up to the club to do,’ Lampard said earlier in the month. ‘But everyone sees how much I’m relying on him and what he’s producing. I love him at this football club, so there’s my answer.’
