Barcelona preparing £30m summer swoop for Chelsea winger Willian – reports

Barcelona are set to launch a £30million bid for Chelsea winger Willian this summer, according to reports.

The Brazil international is out of contract next summer and the Blues are unwilling to let him leave for nothing, meaning they could accept Barca’s offer.

Willian could be heading for the Stamford Bridge exit

Willian could have moved in January as the Spanish side offered a cash-plus-player deal, but the 30-year-old instead remained in west London.

Now, according to The Sun, a deal could be sanctioned by the Stamford Bridge hierarchy so as to not lose the Samba star for NOTHING in 2020.

The La Liga champions offered £50million plus Malcom in order to make a deal happen at the turn of the year, but his value has since dwindled.

With his contract running down and his form dividing the opinion of Chelsea fans, it is understood a transfer fee of £30million should be enough to get a deal done.

Malcom was set to swap in January, but the deal failed to materialise

Maurizio Sarri has used the former Anzhi Makhachkala winger regularly this season, with the forward scoring eight times already this season.

Jose Mourinho parted with £32million to bring Willian in from Russia back in 2013, infamously pipping Tottenham Hotspur to the signing of the starlet.

But the Catalan giants have maintained an interest in the winger, failing with a bid last summer as well.
