Barcelona planning Willian bid

13th April 2019, 14:46 by Tom Hill

Barcelona are planning to make another approach for Chelsea winger Willian this summer, according to reports in the English media.

The Brazilian was a target for the club last summer but the Blues rebuffed their bid and he remained at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri has continued to keep Willian in his plans, with the 30-year-old making 29 appearances in the Premier League.

Barcelona also offered Malcom and cash back in January but they are willing to do a cut-price deal at the end of this campaign.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man has one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea are facing a dilemma due to their transfer ban.

The Blues are not able to sign players for the next two transfer windows although Chelsea may be forced to sell him so they do not lose him for free 12 months later.

Eden Hazard already looks to be on his way to Real Madrid and Willian's potential departure could allow Callum Hudson-Odoi to break into the first team, with Bayern Munich still tracking his signature.
