Chelsea reject £50m Willian bid by Barcelona


Chelsea have rejected a £50m bid from Barcelona for winger Willian according to reports.

The winger, who is presently playing at the 2018 World Cup with Brazil, netted six goals and registered eight assists in 36 Premier League appearances last season.

According to the Daily Mail, the Spanish giants are ardent on seeing him link up with fellow countryman Philippe Coutinho in midfield following Andres Iniesta’s departure.

The publication adds that Willian’s representatives have been in Barcelona as part of the offer, which is believed to be below the costing set by Chelsea.

The29-year-old is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2020.
