Reason Behind Barcelona’s Interest
Willian’s playmaking skills, is one of the biggest reasons as to why Barca have shown a keen interest in the player. Despite being 29 years of age, the Chelsea star commits to his defensive duties and mostly restores the ball possession. This alone makes him a valuable asset to Barcelona.
Moreover, Barca have the 2nd highest number of foreign players from Brazil. Two of the recent additions being of Phillipe Coutinho and Arthur.
This means that if the Camp Nou signs Willian, then they can benefit from the chemistry between Coutinho and Willian. Moreover, the Chelsea winger will prove to be a fine addition to the striking pair of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi who are already in red hot form.
I think United will sell Martial, but only abroad. The only way he goes to Chelsea is if Willian is included in a deal, but he seems to want to go to Barcelona. #SillySeason
