Chelsea Turn Down Willian Malcom Swap Deal Approach from Barcelona

Willian has again attracted interest from Barcelona, but Maurizio Sarri has told him to forget about leaving Chelsea in January.

The Spanish giants were hopeful that Malcom would settle in at the club but have now run out of patience with the player. The La Liga champions have offered Malcom plus cash to Chelsea for the 30-year-old, with the Blues swiftly knocking back the bid.

Mere months after making his way to Camp Nou, Malcom's Barcelona future is up in the air.

Additionally, the fact that the possibility of Callum Hudson-Odoi departing from the Bridge can not be ruled out only adds to Chelsea's hesitancy in letting Willian join Barcelona.

Kelly then tried to fill a poker-faced Willian in on the situation, explaining: "There's loads of newspaper stories but we haven't got time to go through them all but you're very happy?"

The Brazil global is thought to be on the Camp Nou club's radar, with Chelsea said to have rejected a Barca offer of Malcom plus cash for his services. Willian has four goals and six assists in 31 matches this season, but has one year left on his contract after this season.

Blaugrana's renewed interest in the Chelsea star has made them offer Malcom plus €60m to Chelsea, who have rejected it.

On the other hand, Malcom is still young and has huge expectations surrounding him.

England winger Jadon Sancho will reject advances from the Premier League and has insisted he wants to stay at Borussia Dortmund.
