Chelsea reject player plus cash deal for Willian from Barcelona

Chelsea reject player plus cash deal for Willian from Barcelona

The Blues recently rejected a deal for Willian which included Barca summer signing Malcom and cash on top, which valued in total at around £50 million.

Malcom cost Barca €41million and his slow start has seen a number of transfer and loan links crop up, with Everton originally thought to be front-runners before Marco Silva denied interest.

And the same report states that Sarri is indeed open to selling Willian for £50m but is determined to have the final say in the kind of player he signs. I have no idea.

"I think he can do better, he can do better because of his potential but he is really very important to us, so I think it is impossible to lose him in January". "You'll have to ask the club and ask about the market, because if you ask me about the market you put me in trouble, because I don't know".

He has 18 months left on his Chelsea contract and has yet to begin talks about an extension.

In 19 LaLiga games, the Brazilian was only once in the starting XI and he has just featured in 97 minutes in the league overall.

"No, because I have the option with Hazard in this position", said Sarri earlier this month when asked about signing a centre forward.

"At the moment, for his mental condition, he is not able to play I think. I need a replacement but I don't need a very important player like Cesc unhappy here".
