Emerging reports indicate that Barcelona are willing to offer as much as three players to Chelsea for Willian as they try to knock down the Blues’ huge asking price for the Brazilian.
Barcelona reportedly switched their attention to Willian after Antoine Griezmann opted to remain with Atletico Madrid ahead of the forthcoming football season.
Willian is believed to be interested in the switch to the Camp Nou but Chelsea are not willing to let him go and have slapped a £70 million price tag on him.
However, Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportive claim that Barcelona have proposed a player plus cash swap deal instead, and are ready to include three players in the deal that could eventually see Willian join the Catalans. The players mentioned are also not in Ernesto Valverde’s first team plans for next season’s campaign. The players believed to have have been mentioned Andre Gomes, Paulinho, or Rafinha.
