Barcelona to revise bid for Willian after rejection

Barcelona to revise bid for Willian after rejection

Manchester United are eyeing up the signing of Willian from Chelsea as Jose Mourinho looks to boost his attacking options this summer.

Chelsea FC are prepared to the possible departures of Eden Hazard and Willian this summer, Sunday Times reporter Duncan Castles has claimed.

Conte is prepared to kick off Chelsea's pre-season on Monday after medical checks on Saturday, but it remains to be see if the Premier League and FA Cup victor will indeed still be in charge by then.

However, the Brazil worldwide could be on his way out of west London this summer.

Part of the problem for Hazard, and the rest of those is Stamford Bridge, is the uncertainty which continues to shroud the managerial situation in west London.

Sunday Times reporter Castles believes Chelsea FC are prepared for the worst case scenario involving Hazard and Willian this summer.

If Willian does come to Manchester, the club will definitely be boosted with the experience he has in the Premier League.

But United may find it hard to capture the 29-year-old's signing giving the Blues' demands.

"If he goes and Hazard does, Chelsea would need to buy a whole new squad". United have already splashed out £52 million and £19 million on Fred and Diogo Dalot respectively and do not want to be held ransom by Chelsea.

According to a report in the Telegraph, the FA Cup champions will only let Willian join the Old Trafford unit if Frenchman Anthony Martial is included in the deal.

Hazard continues to spark talk of a move to Real Madrid, after several windows of speculation, while Willian has emerged as a target for La Liga giants Barcelona.
