After five seasons at Chelsea, Brazilian winger Willian is keen for a move to the Camp Nou, according to Sport.

However, the Blues, reportedly, still want to retain the dynamic midfielder’s services and have offered the 29-year-old a bumper new contract.

Willian had a difficult relationship with former Blues boss Antonio Conte last year and that motivated him to look elsewhere, despite Maurizio Sarri’s arrival this summer.

That, and the fact that Chelsea won’t be featuring in the Champions League this coming season, has added to speculation that his time in west London is all but over.

Barcelona have had three bids rejected for Willian so far and the Blues are currently weighing up Blaugrana’s latest offer in the region of £65 million.

New Barcelona star Clement Lenglet couldn’t be prouder to have joined the club – and admits it is a bonus that he’ll never have to defend against Lionel Messi in La Liga ever again.

Barca activated the 23-year-old’s €35.9 million release clause to whisk him away from Sevilla earlier this month.

And the defender, who will form a defensive unit with French countryman Samuel Umtiti and Spanish star Gerard Pique at the Nou Camp, has expressed what Barca means to him.

“Barça’s philosophy is unique and doesn’t change,” he told Barca TV.

Lenglet was also quick to express happiness at the fact that he’ll not have to face Argentina wizard Messi anymore.

“I am really happy to be here, because I don’t have to play against them now!” he said.

“Messi is the best in the world. He dominates games easily and can score at any moment from wherever he wants.

”If you have some luck, you can stop him a little bit, but then someone else catches you out.”
