Chelsea reject Barcelona bid for Willian - and offer of Brazilian forward Malcom

The Catalan giants are trying to tempt Chelsea into letting Willian leave by including their summer signing Malcom in any potential deal.

Will he complete a switch to Camp Nou? However, considering the current circumstances, it would have been wise if Chelsea had considered the offer.

Chelsea's Willian brushed off reports that he might be leaving the club after securing a vital three points against Newcastle United on Saturday.

Sarri's wing options have been bolstered by the return to fitness of both Willian and Pedro from muscle injuries, but uncertainty surrounding Callum Hudson-Odoi's future makes Willian's availability all the more important.

He was directly involved in 20 goals across all competitions last season and his improvement in the next few years would be fascinating to see under Sarri's tutelage.

Chelsea rejected the approach from Spain, with Barcelona then settling for Bordeaux forward Malcom instead.

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

The Stamford Bridge side may be tempted to let him depart due to his contract situation - he has just 18 months left on his deal - but an increased offer from Barcelona will be needed.

For one, the Blues would have a direct replacement in attack for the experienced winger, with Malcom possibly being a long-term solution for them. The cash could have also been utilized to sign another player as well.

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