Willian has dodged questions about his Chelsea FC future after Brazil’s exit at the World Cup at the hands of Belgium.

The 29-year-old’s situation at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation all summer due to his lack of playing time at the west London club last season.

Willian has been linked with a move away from the west London club in recent weeks, with the likes of Manchester United and FC Barcelona said to be interested in signing the Brazil international.

The latest reports have even claimed that FC Barcelona have made a bid to try and land Willian as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

Willian was quizzed directly about his future following Belgium’s win over Brazil in the World Cup in Russia on Friday, but the attacker was in no mood to give much away about his situation.

Asked whether he would like to play alongside some of his compatriots at Barcelona, Willian is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard: “Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality.

“In addition to great players, they are very good friends.

“People speculate a lot. We see a lot of things on the internet, but this is not the time to talk about this.

“I’ve not received any information about that. I’m trying to focus on my performance, playing for Brazil.”

Meanwhile, the first group of Chelsea FC players reported to London Colney to begin pre-season training on Saturday as they start their preparations ahead of the new campaign, despite the uncertainty about the managerial situation at Stamford Bridge.
