Insider gives Man United update on FC Barcelona’s bid for Brazil forward
Daily Record reporter Ian McGarry is adamant that FC Barcelona still haven't reached an agreement with Man United target
FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with Willian over a contract but haven’t settled on a transfer fee with Chelsea FC, Ian McGarry has claimed.
The Brazil international has been linked with a potential exit at Stamford Bridge this summer following Willian’s frustrating season at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte used the South American forward sparingly despite Willian being one of Chelsea FC’s better players in the 2017-18 campaign.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk winger came off the bench in Chelsea FC’s 1-0 win against Manchester United in the FA Cup showpiece at Wembley.
Willian took to Instagram to slam the Italian head coach and fuel speculation surrounding his future at the west London outfit.
Manchester United have been linked with a swoop to sign Willian, although it remains to be seen whether Chelsea FC would sell to a direct rival.
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are reported to have told FC Barcelona to sign Willian to improve their options on the right wing.
Daily Record reporter McGarry believes Willian has agreed a contract with FC Barcelona but the two clubs haven’t agreed a transfer fee.
“Barcelona have satisfied Willian’s contract demands,” McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast. “It is now about agreeing a fee with Chelsea.”
Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table to miss out on a Champions League spot.
