Chelsea close to Willian decision

Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea are thinking about accepting Barcelona's offer for Brazilian winger Willian, according to Mirror Football.

The La Liga champions recently made a £65m bid after failing with a £50m and £53m bid respectively.

Mirror Football revealed that the Chelsea hierarchy will meet with new boss Maurizio Sarri to decide if they will accept or reject the offer.

After spending five years at Chelsea, it is believed that Willian wants a move to the Nou Camp. Manchester United are also interested in bringing the former Shakhtar Donetsk winger to Old Trafford.

Sarri faces two problems with Eden Hazard and Willian wanting out of the club. Sarri cannot afford to lose these two players if he hopes to match or surpass the successes of his predecessor and compatriot Antonio Conte.

Hazard had been linked to Real Madrid with the UEFA Champions League winners making him their number one target.

Sarri will have to make sure he keeps one of these two players or make sure he gets a suitable replacement should they leave Stamford Bridge. Manchester United's Anthony Martial has been linked to the Blues as a possible replacement for Hazard.
