Barcelona reportedly need Willian badly & lodge improved bid
- Barca have reportedly lodged a £55m bid with £5m in add-ons
- Chelsea are yet to respond
Daily Mail claim a scoop as they insist Barcelona will persevere with the prospect of bringing the 29-year-old Willian to Nou Camp. The Catalans reportedly had their €50m offer rejected last week but the sale of Paulinho has given them a financial boost.
Willian has a contract valid until summer 2020 and according to Matt Law of the Telegraph, admittedly a better source of the two, Chelsea would sell at the named price.

Barcelona have been indicating their interest in the attacker for a long time. They have a large contingent of South American players, including his Brazil teammate Philippe Coutinho, who enjoy playing with each other and Willian once admitted a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona would please him.
Would you personally drive Willian to the airport at this price?
