WILLIAN

Chelsea have rejected a £50 million bid by Barcelona for the Brazilian attacker, according to the Daily Mail. The Spanish giants are hoping to land the Canarinho star to help bolster the ranks in the wake of Andres Iniesta’s departure, while pairing him with countryman Philippe Coutinho. If Barcelona can’t break through, Manchester United are reportedly waiting in the wings and could offer even more to nab one of Jose Mourinho’s targets.

SUSO

The 24-year-old AC Milan midfielder could be headed to Real Madrid after his agent, Alessando Lucci, met with the Champions League title holders, according to Sport. With Milan facing a two-year ban from the Europa League, the door may be open for the Spaniard to depart. The cost would reportedly be around €40 million, which Madrid could negotiate down, and Suso has experience playing under Julen Lopetegui during his time with Spain’s youth teams.

TIMOTHY FOSU-MENSAH

After struggling to find his place with Manchester United and spending last season on loan at Crystal Palace, the 20-year-old has become a rental target for Valencia, according to Marca. The La Liga club have reportedly contacted United about a loan for Fosu-Mensah, who could slot into a role at right-back. While talented, the former Ajax youth academy has yet to find his footing.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is edging towards a move to Juventus despite interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The Lazio midfielder is keen on joining the reigning Serie A champions this summer, according to Premium Sport (via Calciomercato).

The 23-year-old impressed in Serbia’s ultimately short-lived World Cup campaign in Russia and is ready to decide his future.

Milinkovic-Savic is likely to command a fee of 100million but given his immense potential, suitors have not been discouraged by that price tag.

Barcelona‘s pursuit of Chelsea winger Willian took a major blow on Friday.

The Premier League club have rejected a £50million bid from the Catalans for the Brazilian.

Willian is currently with the Brazil squad at the World Cup in Russia as they prepare to face Mexico in the round of 16.

Barcelona are keen on adding him to their roster as they look to bolster their attack. However, Chelsea’s dismissal of their latest bid is good news for Manchester United who are also tracking the 29-year-old.

Jose Mourinho is known to be a huge admirer of the former Shakhtar Donetsk player and is confident of luring him to Old Trafford after making a similar swoop for Nemanja Matic last summer.

Willian enjoyed an impressive individual campaign at Chelsea this past season as he registered 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions. However, he’s yet to produce his best for Brazil in Russia.
