Chelsea FC have rejected a third bid from FC Barcelona for Willian this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Blues have turned down yet another offer for the 29-year-old Brazil international, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

The same report says that FC Barcelona’s latest bid for Willian is believed to be in the region of being worth more than £55m.

According to the same story, the Spanish side first expressed an interest in signing Willian as long as three months ago following his lack of playing time under Antonio Conte last season.

The report says that Chelsea FC made their latest bid to try and sign Willian last Friday as they look to try and bring him to Camp Nou ahead of next season.

The same story says that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is still interested in a move to bring Willian to Old Trafford this summer.

Manchester United are thought to have been keeping an eye on Willian’s situation at Chelsea FC since the end of last season.

The attacker is currently on an extended summer holiday after having played for Brazil at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
