Chelsea FC name their asking price for FC Barcelona target – report
Chelsea FC would look for a fee of £70m if they are to sell Willian this summer, say reports
Chelsea FC would be looking for a transfer fee in the region of £70m if they are to sell Willian to FC Barcelona this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Blues would seek a fee of around £70m if they are to cash in on the Brazilian attacker this summer.
Willian’s future at Stamford Bridge has been something of a source of speculation recently due to his lack of regular first-team football under Antonio Conte last season.
The 29-year-old has been touted as a target for Manchester United in the past, but he is now also being linked with a potential move to FC Barcelona.
The same story says that Willian’s proposed move to FC Barcelona could pave the way for Paulinho to leave the Spanish club.
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are yet to make any new signings this summer despite having been heavily linked with a number of players.
The west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification under Conte.
However, they did manage to end the campaign on a positive note by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in May.
