Willian back on Barca radar

13th April 2019, 14:12 by Neil Foster

Reports claim Spanish giants Barcelona will renew their efforts to sign Chelsea midfielder Willian in the summer.

The Brazil international is currently in his sixth season at Stamford Bridge after signing from Russia club Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer of 2013.

The 30-year-old has won two Premier League titles plus an FA Cup and League Cup during his stay in west London.

However, it seems as though his days with the Blues might be numbered if Barca offer enough cash for the South American.

Chelsea have refused to do business over the talented winger in the past but, with Callum Hudson-Odoi set to see more playing time in the coming seasons, it seems inevitable that Willian will be on his way.

A reports in the Telegraph suggests the Catalans might try again at the end of the campaign and Willian could well request to leave if he continues to be benched by Maurizio Sarri.
