Willian finally speaks on Barcelona interest

Transfer News LIVE updates Arsenal signings close Fekir to Liverpool Man Utd EXCLUSIVE

The 29-year-old is now preparing for Seleçao World Cup quarter-final against Belgium on Friday at Kazan Arena but the Chelsea winger has already made up his mind to quit the dethroned Premier League Champions.

Manchester United reportedly make Chelsea's Willian their top summer transfer target.

Tite's side were beaten 2-1 by Belgium in the quarter-finals on Friday, which has paved the way for the 29-year-old to focus on his future; something he has openly admitted previously.

La Blaugrana duo of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez has urged Barcelona to sign Chelsea winger Willian this summer transfer window.

Willian who helped Chelsea to win the FA Cup title last season has been sent out of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup with his national team after losing against Belgium on Friday night, July 6.

Asked whether he would like to play alongside some of his compatriots at Barcelona, Willian is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard: "Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality".

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person".

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea".

I'm following the information about Barcelona on the internet but I still do not know anything.

However, TeamTalk also cite a report from the Sun that claims United are confident they will win the race to sign Willian as Mourinho looks to be reunited with the South American at Old Trafford this summer.

Chelsea's financial demands are steep for the Catalan giants and club are continuing to keep tabs on the player's situation at Stamford Bridge.
