Willian has confirmed Chelsea rejected a bid from Barcelona for him after the World Cup in 2018.

Reports had claimed Chelsea rejected a bid of £50m from Barcelona for Willian and the Brazilian has now confirmed the reports.

“The only real official offer I had came from Barcelona, last year, after the World Cup,” Willian told DAZN.

“Barcelona indeed presented an offer to Chelsea but it was rejected.

“That was the only actual time I had to discuss something like this with my family, although we really love it here (London]. So there were several factors that helped us in staying.”

Willian’s contract runs out at the end of the season and the Brazilian is yet to reach terms over a new contract with Chelsea.

With Chelsea boss Frank Lampard putting faith in youth, there’s no guarantee Willian will sign a new deal at the club.
