Report: Chelsea demand £70 million for Willian as Manchester United and Barcelona do battle

Chelsea are demanding £70 million for the sale of Willian as per various reports. The Blues are said to be willing to part ways with the Brazilian but are not letting him go for cheap.

The 30-year-old is a target for Barcelona and Manchester United. Both sides are keen on signing a right winger and see Willian as the perfect signing.

The winger has been in brilliant for Brazil at the World Cup despite not managing to get on the scoresheet till now. He has started all the games for the South American side and has been one of their best players so far.

Willian had a fall out with Conte towards the end of the 2017/18 season. It because clear after the Brazilian posted a picture of the team celebrating the FA Cup cup but covered the manager with emojis.

The post led to reports that the winger was looking for a move away. Conte might not be at Stamford Bridge next season, but still, the Brazilian is not willing to stay at the club.

The Red Devils and the Catalan side are said to be the frontrunners for his signature. Reports suggest that a deal between United and Chelsea is unlikely as the Blues do not want to strengthen a rival.

Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of Willian and wanted to ring him to Old Trafford last summer. The United chiefs are reluctant to hold talks with Chelsea because of their interest in Anthony Martial. They do not want the Frenchman going the other way in any deal.

Willian, however, has refused to discuss anything right now. '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.' said the Brazilian.
