Barca 'Ready To Launch £50 Million Player-Plus Cash Bid' For Willian

Barca 'Ready To Launch £50 Million Player-Plus Cash Bid' For Willian

However, the 21-year-old winger has rarely played for the Catalans, with only five appearances in La Liga.

And with Barcelona reportedly willing to sell Malcom outright if Chelsea continue to be unwilling to sell Willian - because he has failed to force his way into their first team picture - Everton should muscle in and rekindle their interest.

Willian saw a proposed move to the Nou Camp fall through previous year while Malcom was a £38m buy from Bordeaux.

Both clubs were involved in a discussion regarding the Brazil international's move to Camp Nou last summer. Reports suggested Barca had made a swap deal for Willian, an offer consisting of £49 million plus his compatriot.

Chelsea's Willian brushed off reports that he might be leaving the club after securing a vital three points against Newcastle United on Saturday.

On the other hand, Malcom is still young and has huge expectations surrounding him.

So there you have it - Chelsea think Willian, 30, is worth more than £50m and they don't want to lose a key player, despite the fact they'd be getting a top talent in return.

Willian has just 18 months left on his contract and there is a consensus that an exit for the player will not be the worst decision especially if they get anywhere close to the figure quoted in this particular transfer deal.

It seems a leap unless Chelsea is bargaining on using the Europa League to reach the Champions League next season.
