£65m bid tabled: Chelsea closed to agreeing transfer deal for player
Willain is one of Chelsea’s prized asset and was on the verge of an exit from the Premier League outfit this summer after seeing a bid to join Catalans Barcelona rejected in July.
Willain startled media outlets when he opened up about his relationship with former boss Antonio Conte.
His suddenly estranged relationship with Antonio Conte last season caused brows to raised and stirred discomfort among fans despite a sunny spell during Conte’s first stint in charge.
Willian confessed he was angling for a move away from the Premier League club if Conte remained as boss.
When things turned awry for the winger, Barcelona came ready to nab the winger.
The Catalans dropped an eyewatering 65 million pounds bid only to be rejected by Chelsea.
Manchester United reportedly joined the fray, preparing to snatch the star before Barcelona stepped up their previous bid.
Currently, Willian who has two years left on his contract at Chelsea says he is happy under Sarri.
The 30-year-old commended the 56-year-old style of play, saying it encourages players to “have fun” with the ball on the pitch, a missing ingredient in Conte’s tack.
Willian is happy at Chelsea and reminded everyone that he is committed to winning more at the club
