Chelsea star Willian is reportedly set to snub Manchester United in favour of a move to Barcelona in which will surely be considered a blow to Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United have also been linked with the Brazil global, who has started all four of the Selecao's matches at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

But the 29-year-old claims he is in the dark about his future at Chelsea.

The Spanish Champions have offered Andre Gomes, Rafinha and Paulinho to Chelsea in a bid to bring Willian to Camp Nou after it was believed that they are not in Ernesto Valverde's plans for next season.

"People speculate a lot".

'I'm following the information about Barcelona on the internet but I still do not know anything.

Arsenal to sign Andre Gomes from Barcelona
He ended up playing 24 times for Arsenal last term and was especially prominent in their run to the Europa League semi-finals. The 2017-18 season, in particular, was one to forget for Gomes, who managed a mere 10 starts across all competitions.

Barcelona look to have positioned themselves at the front of the queue to sign Willian this summer. The former Premier League champions are set to endure a hard summer transfer window with trying to keep hold of star players at Stamford Bridge.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Chelsea value Willian at around £70 million but the Catalonian club is not willing to pay that massive sum for the Brazilian.

He still has a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2020 and has won the club's Players' Player of the Year award in two of the past three seasons.

Next up for the South American giants is Belgium, a team littered with Premier League stars, for a place in the semi-finals.

"I am focussed on the World Cup and it is the only thing concerning us right now".
