Some Chelsea fans are in a good mood after seeing Willian being linked with a summer move to Barcelona.
According to Marca, the Spanish giants are close to agreeing a deal to bring the 31-year-old to La Liga as his contract continues to run down. His current deal at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season, meaning Barcelona will be able to pick him up on a free transfer. This comes after they reportedly eyed up a £20m move for him in the transfer window that has just gone.
This is not the first time Barcelona have registered interest in Willian, with Sky Sports having reported on alleged bids from the La Liga champions in the past. The Brazil international did not start for the Blues in their recent 2-2 draw with Leicester City, but he has been a regular under Frank Lampard this season.
He has made 24 appearances in the Premier League, averaging just under two key passes per game – the highest average in the Chelsea squad (per WhoScored). Despite his importance to his manager, several supporters would be happy to see him go. Take a look at some of their hilarious reactions to the news below…
Just did a knee slide. Cheers.
