According to Mundo Deportivo, Willian has been on Barca’s radar for around ten years now, and the club would consider signing him even at this stage of his career due to his potential availability on a free.

The 31-year-old remains a regular in Chelsea’s first-team even if he’s no longer at his peak, and it’s easy to imagine he could be a useful squad player at the Nou Camp at the very least.

Mundo Deportivo suggest that he is no longer a top priority for the Catalan giants, but that transfer chiefs at the club are not ruling out the option.
