Barca to tempt Willian with second bid

  Barca to tempt Willian with second bid Barcelona are expected to tempt Chelsea’s resolve with a second bid for Willian, according to a report from the Daily Mail. The La Liga Champions’ first bid in the region of £50 million was rejected with the Premier League looking for something in the region of £70 million. Willian’s relationship with Antonio Conte has broken down and is beyond repair, most evident by the Brazilian’s Instagram post consisting of trophies hiding the current Chelsea head coach during the FA Cup celebrations. The 29-year-old made 36 appearances in the Premier League last season, starting 20 times and was used as a substitute in the remaining 16 games. The Brazilian scored six goals while assisting eight. His last Premier League goal came in the 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on March 10. Willian addressed rumours about his future to Mundo Deportivo, as reported by the Metro. Willian admitted that he was ‘in the dark’ but intensified rumours to Barcelona due to comments about his friendship with Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho. “I’m following the information about Barcelona on the internet but I still do not know anything.” The Brazilian has also reportedly instructed his agent, Kia Joorabchian to negotiate a deal with the Catalan side. Joorabchian has been involved in transfer negotiations since 2006 and was part of negotiations which saw Willian move to Chelsea back in 2013 from the Russian club, Anzhi Makhachkala.

Barcelona have launched a second bid of £60million for Chelsea winger Willian . Sportsmail revealed last month that Chelsea had rejected a £50million offer. Ernesto Valverde has returned with an improved figure to test Chelsea's resolve.

Last week, SSN broke the news of Barcelona 's initial £50m bid for the Brazilian, with talks still ongoing between the two clubs and representatives of the player. Sky sources understand the La Liga champions first began efforts to lure Willian to the Nou Camp as long as three months ago.

Reports have suggested Chelsea would be willing to sell if they received a bid closer to £60 million.

It has been suggested that Maurizio Sarri would like to keep the player at the club next season.

The Brazilian had seen his future thrown into doubt after falling out of favour with Antonio Conte, who has recently been sacked by the club, according to reports.

Barcelona eye Kante deal with Andre Gomes included

  Barcelona eye Kante deal with Andre Gomes included Barcelona are reportedly ready to move for N’Golo Kante this summer in a deal that could see Andre Gomes move in the opposite direction. Reports from Gianluca Di Marzio suggest that Barcelona have earmarked Kante as a replacement for Paulinho. The La Liga champions are in the market for midfielders following Paulinho’s and Andres Iniesta’s departure from the Nou Camp. Gomes appears to be surplus to requirements at Barcelona after failing to make a mark after joining from Valencia. The Portuguese international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the past, with Arsenal the most recent club to express an interest in the player. Chelsea will be hoping to keep Kante at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer and talks are believed to be underway over a new deal. Kante is not the only Chelsea player Barcelona are interested in this summer. They have made two bids to sign Willian, whilst have also expressed an interest in Eden Hazard.

Chelsea demanding £70m million for Willian .
Chelsea are demanding somewhere in the region of £70 million from either Manchester United or Barcelona for Brazilian winger Willian. According to Mundo Deportivo, the two clubs have been told how much they will need to pay to sign the Brazilian, who has been heavily linked with a summer exit. The Blues have already reportedly turned down a bid worth around £50 million for the player. The report claims that Willian would be keen to complete a move to the Nou Camp and has expressed his desire to move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona in the past. Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for the Brazilian, but it is yet to be seen if Chelsea would deal with their Premier League rivals. The Blues sold Nemanja Matic to the Old Trafford club last summer in a deal many believe has come back to bite them.
