Chelsea rejected a deal of £50 Million for Willian, over which Barcelona responded with a new deal, adding more £10 Million to the previous offer.
According to Simon Jones of MailOnline, Blaugrana offered an initial amount of £55 Million, along with £5 Million in addition.
Barca tries to improve their attack options as they believe that their team still does not have a higher quality in depth and style of attack.”
The Catalan won Copa del Rey and the La Liga in the previous year, but missed on Antoine Griezmann in this summer when he decided to stay with Atlético Madrid.
A spectacular campaign with blues showed that Willian comeback with 12 assists and 13 goals in all competitions. Squawka Football provided the figures for the impressive results he produced during the season:
At World Cup he was bet on the right line of Brazil, with Philippe Coutinho, Neymar, and Marcelo on the left, he had a relatively quiet tournament in Russia. However, he impressed with the victory over Mexico with a score of 2:0 and played a key role in the excellent command team.
Willian is a hard-working, strong, and trustworthy player and he would probably be a good candidate at Ernesto Valverde in Camp Nou, where positions and style can now be found equally.
The Brazilian turns 30 when the new season starts and £60 Million is a huge amount to pay for, in the current market. If Chelsea continues to charge a higher rate, Barca should consider a cheaper option that can provide a comparable return.
Heading to prime focus of the sport, every eye of the footballer lover now looks on the World Cup Finale. After some unexpected results, Croatia and France are gearing up to snatch away the cup to their home.
