The Spanish club is keen to add Willian to their ranks as they look to build a team capable of challenging some of Europe’s elite clubs for the illustrious Champions League trophy next term. Barcelona have been unsuccessful at claiming the title as their own since their last triumph during the 2014-2015 campaign.
The DailyMail reports that the Catalan giants have approached Chelsea with what is to be believed a surprising £65m offer for the winger. Signing the 29-year-old is their main priority this summer as they look to deliver an assist provider for striker Luis Suarez and captain Lionel Messi. However, Willian is more than capable of carrying a team on his own shoulders and will not shy away from the opportunity to score goals for the Spanish side.
Barca relies heavily on Suarez and Messi at providing them with the winning goals in a match and needs to strengthen the team’s overall chances of being victorious if the mentioned names happen to suffer an injury setback. A player of Willian’s calibre will slot in effortlessly at the Nou Camp and can provide them with squad depth as the winger is versatile in nature. He can also perform the role of an attacking midfielder with ease.
The new Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, is hoping to have a word with Willian before he makes his desires known about whether he is willing to stay as Chelsea approach a new era of management or if he wants to take up the new challenges that await him in Spain and the La Liga.
The Brazilian ace is unstoppable and unplayable on his day. He stirs havoc in the opposition half as he runs at goal looking to cannon the ball past the goalkeeper and into the opposition net. He is lethal at a dead-ball situation as he lines himself up to strike a direct free-kick. He complements the playing style of national compatriot Philippe Coutinho and the pair will combine well to take Barcelona towards a successful future.
Chelsea must do all that they can in convincing Willian to remain a Blue as he is vital to the West London team’s chances of attaining some silverware in the coming years..
After five glorious years at Stamford Bridge, perhaps it is time Willian packs his bags and departs for a new land and to newer challenges. Chelsea, however, will put up a fight before they succumb to defeat at the hands of Barcelona, once again.
