Chelsea are battling to keep their squad intact amidst prying eyes from European football, where a number of the continent’s giants are looking to snatch the services of key players.

Brazil international Willian has been subject of intense interest from LaLiga champions Barcelona, who have seen a number of bids rejected, and Chelsea are now reported to have rebuffed the latest advance from the Spanish giants.

The Daily Star state the Blues have rejected a staggering offer of £65m for the 29-year-old as they are in no rush to sell, although their preference would be not to see the Brazil star move to a Premier League rival – as Manchester United are also keen on his services.

Willian is pushing for an exit after falling out with Antonio Conte last summer, despite seeing Maurizio Sarri arrive as a replacement, and Barcelona are expected to renew their interest with a fourth offer in the coming weeks.
