Brazilian winger and Chelsea playmaker Willian has been the crux at the front of the Blues attack since joining from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013.
He’s grown into one of the finest attackers not just in England but also Europe. The originally 30 million pounds star poached from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala has been hugely touted with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona.
And the prospect of moving to the Nou Camp looks very tempting as the Catalans are looking to bolster their squad after their shocking dismissal at the hands of Italian outfit Roma in the Champions League last term, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Barcelona reportedly lodged a bid of 50 million euros for the attacker, but they were dealt a huge blow of disappointment after Chelsea threw their bid off the table.
Chelsea want a whopping 80 million euros for their playmaker and they have informed the Catalans they want nothing less for the 30-year-old.
Mundo Deportivo say Barca sources have informed them Willian interest is real and there’s been two weeks of contacts with his entourage. https://t.co/x7EDB1mON8 #cfc #fcblive pic.twitter.com/5U2EjKh2L8

The possibility of join Barcelona this summer has been long dreamt about by the Brazil international and even at the wrong side of 30, Willian doesn’t feel like someone sent for and couldn’t come.
Nonetheless, one man is determined to make that move happen and that’s the famous Kia Joorabchian.
There’s been any outcry from the Nou Camp that the price is too steep at 80 million euros. However, there is somewhat a chance both clubs can dicker a deal for the World Cup ace.
