Chelsea reject offer from Barcelona for willian
Chelsea have reportatively rejected an offer for their attacking midfielder william from barcelona in Thursday. Barca tabled an offer for Willian which amounted to €55m (£49m/$63m), including Malcom but was rejected by Chelsea
Willian has been a Barcelona target in the past, on more than one occasion, but Chelsea are not believed to be interested in letting him go for Malcom plus a sum of cash which would value the deal at around £50 million. And Even though Willian has just turned 30 and only has 18 months left on his current contract Chelsea value him higher than the proposal that was put to them by Barcelona representatives on Thursday. Chelsea regard Willian as a key member of their squad and are looking to strengthen this window rather than let first-team regulars go. They have already had a series of offers from Bayern Munich for 18-year-old winger Callum Hudson-Odoi who is keen to leave. But The skilful winger also has interest from China with Dalian Yifang prepared to offer him a lucrative deal to go there but Barcelona would be his dream move.
Chelsea want straight cash and because he only has 18 months remaining on his contract, they would be tempted by an offer of £50m
