Barcelona, Juventus to compete for Chelsea winger?

Willian tracked by Barca and Juve

Barcelona and Juventus are reportedly looking at the prospect of signing Willian on a free transfer next summer, should he fail to agree on a new deal at Chelsea.

The Brazil international was the subject of a £30m bid from the Blaugrana last summer but the Blues turned down the advances, given they were not in a position to find a replacement under the transfer ban.

According to Mundo Deportivo, both Barcelona and Juventus are monitoring the attacker's proceedings and they could come up with contract proposals, should the Blues fail to find a breakthrough.

Willian's current deal expires at the end of the campaign and so far, the Blues are yet to open negotiations with the player's representatives regarding a possible renewal.

Willian started the season with a regular role off the bench but he has recently become one of Lampard's undisputed starters and has scored in the past two games across all competitions.
