Chelsea Turn Down Willian Malcom Swap Deal Approach from Barcelona
Various British newspapers are reporting that Barcelona have reignited their interest in Chelsea winger Willian and have proposed a swap deal which would involve Brazilian winger Malcom moving in the other direction.
31 year old Willian has only 18 months to run on his current deal with no suggestion yet that he will extend his contract. Malcom has barely played since signing from Bordeaux this summer.
Barca reportedly bid £55m for the player in July, only for Chelsea to rebuff the offer. Barca instead bought Malcom for £38m from Bordeaux, but he has struggled at the Nou Camp.
Barca have reportedly made a renewed approach, with Malcom thrown into the deal, which Chelsea are also thought to have refused.
