Barcelona has made their 2nd bid for Chelsea winger Willian
After a rejection of their first bid, Barcelona has made their second bid for Brazilian star Willian. The bid is believed to be worth £53 million.
Initially there were news that English side Manchester united are also in quest for the Brazilian star but there has not been any official bid from the Red Devils.
Turning 30 next month, wants big move despite of having a contract with Chelsea until 2020.The Brazilian was a crucial player for the Blues in both their Premier League winning campaign, 2014/2015 and 2016/2017. He was their stand out player in the 2015/2016 campaign, when the club under performed and finished outside the top 4.
Representing Chelsea in more than 170 matches for last 5 years the Brazilian forward has scored in more than 50 occasions and has played an important role in Chelsea’s League win in the year 2014-15 and the year 2016-17. In the last season, Willian was not used by Antonio Conte to his full strength as he mostly came on as a substitute. Though the Brazilian had a steady season for the Blues aftyer scoring in 13 games and assisting in 12 of them out of 55 appearances for the club.
Barcelona are trying to improve their attacking options and Barca boss Ernesto Valverde wants to bring in more depth to his attack and he is a preferred option due to a desire to link him up with team-mate Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian is said to be hard-working and will perfectly fit under Ernesto Valverde at Camp Nou.
Chelsea is still demanding €80 million (£71 million/$93 million) and if this bid is rejected then it can see Barca looking for more cheaper options with similar results.
