Chelsea reject £50m bid for Willian from Barcelona

Chelsea receive £50million bid for Manchester United transfer target Willian

Chelsea receive £50million bid for Manchester United transfer target Willian

Following the rejected proposal from Barcelona, the Daily Express say Chelsea are bracing themselves for United to approach them with a substantial fee.

Willian's representatives have been in Barcelona and the lure of the Spanish giants will be tempting but Chelsea have so far shown no willingness to sell.

Chelsea have been braced for interest in the Brazilian, with Manchester United reportedly considering a summer move.

However, it seems Mourinho is also keen to add to his attacking options and he could be eyeing a reunion with Willian at Old Trafford amid speculation linking Anthony Martial with a move this summer.

With Willian due to turn 30 in the coming months, the Blues could consider a summer sale with the amount of money being offered.

The UN children's agency said it was " shocking and unacceptable ". She said the government is taking the matter seriously.

Last summer, Paulinho was a surprise arrival at Camp Nou but the Brazil global enjoyed a fine campaign, contributing nine goals and two assists from 34 La Liga appearances.

Barcelona insist they have not made a bid for the Chelsea star.

Jose Mourinho is a fan of the 29-year-old and is hopeful of taking advantage of the strained relationship the Brazil global has with the Blues' in limbo manager Antonio Conte, following his limited game time at Stamford Bridge last season. Brazil have qualified for the Round of 16, where they will play Mexico after finishing top of their group.

The Mail believe the Blues have dismissed the offer, but the Blaugrana could return, with Manchester United also said to be interested.
