Chelsea winger Willian was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

Earlier in July, Mundo Deportivo reported the Blues were demanding €70m to sanction the Brazilian’s sale, which is why they ended their interest in the 30-year-old and signed Malcom.

Onda Cero’s David Alonso claims in his program ‘The Transistor’ that Real Madrid were offered a chance to sign the west London club’s player a ‘few days ago’.

The Champions League winners’ managing director, José Ángel Sánchez turned down the opportunity to sign the South American because there are targeting players with a different profile.

The report does not indicate as to who offered the two-time Premier League winner to the Spanish capital club.

Since it’s mentioned the attacker was offered not long ago, it is likely that his agent contacted Real Madrid rather than Chelsea because the latter cannot replace him until the start of the next year.

Willian has also pledged his allegiance to the Blues this summer.
