Willian has refused to commit his future to Chelsea amid reported interest from Barcelona.

Barcelona have scouted the winger at the World Cup, with a senior figure from the club jetting to Russian Federation to watch Brazil's last 16 match against Mexico.

The Brazilian has also reportedly instructed his agent, Kia Joorabchian to negotiate a deal with the Catalan side. "As per football consultant Ian McGarry", The club leading the chase ( for Willian's signature) is Barcelona.

Willian said that victory over Japan and adversity will have boosted Belgium's confidence but that he was sure his own team are favourites to move on to the semi-finals.

The Brazilian coming to United will add another dimension to our attack and will make us more potent, however, losing Martial would be a major blow as the Frenchman has a lot of potential.

Manchester United will launch a €40m (£35.4m) bid for Mexico worldwide Hirving Lozano in the coming days, according to Tuttomercatoweb. "After speaking to people at Chelsea, they are willing to sell".

"Everyone needs to know who the new manager is and then hopefully you can get some top quality players", said Bridge. His performances at the Mundial were also ordinary and he had to be replaced by a far more effective Douglas Costa several times.

Chelsea's asking price is proving a problem, with the Blues after a whopping €80m (£70m) for his services.

So, how could Willian fit in at the Nou Camp if he does end up making the switch?
