Will he or won't he? Barca plot summer swoop for Chelsea ace Willian after two failed moves
Eunice|April. 13, 2019
BARCELONA are plotting a summer swoop for Chelsea star Willian after two failed transfers in January.
The Brazilian winger, 30, came close to a move to the Nou Camp earlier this season, but Barca were unsuccessful in their bids.
The La Liga leaders bid £50million - as well as flop Malcom - in January , but saw their offer rebuffed.
Barcelona had launched THREE separate bids for Willian last summer, only to grow frustrated with being rejected over and over again - instead turning to ex-Bordeaux ace Malcom.
However, the La Liga leaders are set to reignite their interest in Willian this summer and could make a cut-price move, according to reports.
The Brazilian's contract runs until next summer - and Chelsea could be tempted to cash-in on the star rather than risk losing him for a free.
"I WANT TO STAY"
With Callum Hudson-Odoi, 18, proving his worth on the wing already, he's likely to be considered the future of Chelsea.
But while the Blues may be happy to make a profit on Willian - who was brought to Stamford Bridge for £30million in 2013 - the player himself may not be willing to leave.
Earlier this year, Willian said: “I have one year left, but of course I want to play for this club.
“I don’t know if they want me, but of course I want to continue here.
“This club is very special to me. I won titles here, I have the affection from the fans and from the people that work in the club.
“I feel comfortable to stay. I am happy when I play well and score goals. I can give a different light.”
Despite the transfer speculation, Willian has played 49 times already this season for Chelsea, proving he is still very highly thought of by Maurizio Sarri.
