Barcelona has returned with a second bid for the Brazilian with an additional ten million euro tacked on to their previous offer.
In line with Sky Sports, Barcelona has offered Chelsea €60 million for the services of Brazilian, Willian, having admitted interest not too long ago. The right winger was considered one of Chelsea’s finest performers during last season’s last 16 ties between the Premier League side and Barcelona and obviously left an impression.
They’d reportedly made an offer of €50 million that was rejected and returned with a second bid. Willian would take up a non-European place in the squad and Barcelona’s three spots are at the moment filled by new signing Arthur, Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina but the Colombian defender has been linked with a move out of the club with Everton reportedly keen.
It’s a transfer many at Barca are baffled by given the 29-year-old’s specialised role on the right. That spot and role are already filled by Ousmane Dembélé, their record signing last summer. The French winger has not played a significant role for his country at the World Cup but it’s difficult to understand why Barcelona are so keen on a player at that worth with Dembélé waiting in the wings.
