Willian breaks silence over Barcelona transfer link

A host of players, including Andre Gomes, Rafinha and Paulinho have been touted as possible targets for the Blues as Barcelona attempt to sweeten the deal.

Mundo Deportivo report that the Catalan side could offer a player in return as they are now unwilling to pay the £70 million that Chelsea asking for.

Willian admits he's following reports linking him with a move to Barcelona but is unsure if he will leave Chelsea this summer.

"People speculate a lot".

The Brazilian coming to United will add another dimension to our attack and will make us more potent, however, losing Martial would be a major blow as the Frenchman has a lot of potential. I've not received any information about that.

Willian had praise for Coutinho, saying: "Coutinho has been playing a wonderful World Cup, and he helps us a lot". The former Premier League champions are set to endure a hard summer transfer window with trying to keep hold of star players at Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Blues could be prepared to cash-in on the talented Brazilian attacker to fund their summer transfer business ahead of next season.

According to Manchester Evening News, Mundo Deportivo report that Willian will turn down the Red Devils in order to have a chance of playing alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
