Chelsea winger Willian is reportedly ‘desperate’ to seal a move away from the club this summer.
Willian signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2013. Jose Mourinho personally played a part in the Brazilian being granted a work permit. The pair have had a good relationship since.
Manchester United have been hovering around Willian for several months, but Barcelona have emerged as frontrunners to sign him.
Barca’s interest exploded into life during the World Cup, but all has gone quiet since.
With Maurizio Sarri now in charge, Willian’s poor relationship with Antonio Conte is no longer a reason for him to depart.
According to The Sun, he still wants to. It’s claimed that Willian remains intent on leaving this summer, despite Sarri’s arrival.
The Sun believe that Willian has spoken to Philippe Coutinho about life at the Nou Camp, and has had his head turned.
We don’t know what to believe. Until we hear from the man himself, his future is very much up in the air.
