Barcelona have renewed their interest to sign Chelsea winger during the 2020 summer transfer window.
William is in the final 12 months of his contract and will soon be available on a free transfer.
Recall that the Blues rejected bids of £40m and £60m from the Catalan club this summer, with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy viewing Willian as too important to lose during their transfer ban and Frank Lampard’s first season in charge.
However, the 31-year-old will be able to negotiate a pre-contract deal with clubs on the continent from January 2020 and, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have moved to get their long-term target.
It’s unsurprising given Willian’s start to the season, continuing the high-performance levels and consistency he has been known for in his time in England.
Barcelona will not only have to persuade Willian to join, they’ll have to convince his family to relocate to Catalunya – given that he jokingly referred to his wife as ‘the boss’ in the same interview, it might be a tricky task.
