Chelsea have reportedly demanded £70 million to sell Willian as Barcelona joined Manchester United in the race for the Brazilian winger.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Willian is ‘crazy’ on a move to the Nou Camp after the Catalan giants expressed their interest.

United are also keen to land the 29-year-old who played 36 of Chelsea’s 38 Premier League games last term.

Willian has been away in Russia at the World Cup with Brazil, who have reached the quarter-finals.

He has started each of the Selecao’s four games so far and it is expected he will do the same against Belgium in the next round.

Last night, Belgium knocked out Japan after a dramatic win.

Willian will want to be playing Champions League football next season after Chelsea failed to qualify. An escape route to Barcelona or United would change that.

United manager Jose Mourinho brought Willian to Stamford Bridge during his second stint at Chelsea.
