Barcelona Ready To Launch £50m Player-Plus Cash Bid For Chelsea Winger Willian In Deal Which Would See Brazilian Malcom Go The Other Way

Barcelona have launched a new player-plus cash bid worth £50million for Chelsea midfielder Willian.

The Spanish side are willing to offer Brazilian winger Malcom plus cash for Willian who saw a proposed move to Barcelona fall through last year.

Malcom cost £38million from Bordeaux last summer but has failed to live up to his potential and is being courted by clubs across Europe.

Barcelona bought the 21-year-old after being rebuffed three times in their efforts to prise Willian from Chelsea.

Chelsea rejected offers going up to £65million in July but could be tempted this time as Willian has turned 30 and has 18 months left on contract.

Maurizio Sarri is eager to strengthen rather than lose too many key players but knows Chelsea want to lower the age of their squad.

Chelsea are loathe to let Callum Hudson-Odoi join Bayern Munich but 31-year-old Cesc Fabregas is primed to join Monaco and a big offer for Willian could prove tempting this time.

The skilful winger also has interest from China with Dalian Yifang prepared to offer him a lucrative deal to go there but Barcelona would be his dream move.

Chelsea may decide that the overall £50m deal is not enough as Malcom has failed to impress so far on the big stage and could demand a straight cash offer as negotiations begin.
