Football transfer rumours: Willian to leave Chelsea for Barcelona?

first_imgConfusion reigned at Cobham this week, with Antonio Conte taking Chelsea training as late as Thursday morning before, finally, getting the boot later that afternoon. The players had been left in the dark, supposedly. So, where does Willian stand in all this? Well, Barcelona are still thinking he is the man to keep the good times rolling at Camp Nou and are happy to throw £60m at Chelsea for him, as they hope their second bid makes more of a splash than their first one did with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy.

Frankfurt are happy to flog Ante Rebic and Tottenham Hotspur are not hellbent on keeping Toby Alderweireld and would consider a deal, as long as its the right price for the notoriously stoney Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman. And, naturally, after an impressive maiden World Cup showing, Leicester City have upped the asking price and want a mouthwatering £50m for the England defender Harry Maguire. Over at Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp is not content with Dejan Lovren as his only Croatian defender, so has targeted the ponytailed Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida, and the 29-year-old will cost circa £17.5m. Staying on Merseyside, Everton, thwarted in their attempts to land Kieran Tierney from Celtic, have switched their focus to Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne, with the Colombia centre-back a loan target and the latter available for around £10m.center_img features Read more Share on Twitter Transfer roundup: West Ham set to sign Felipe Anderson for club record £33.5m Rumour mill Elsewhere, Southampton are open to the idea of loaning now third-choice goalkeeper Fraser Forster following the arrival of Angus Gunn, while Crystal Palace and Burnley fancy Michail Antonio’s pace and power, with Sean Dyche teasing that the club intend to break their £15m transfer record again this summer.
