If Willian has ambitions to play for the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid, it may well be now or never.

Antonio Conte used the South American forward sparingly despite Willian being one of Chelsea FC's better players in the 2017-18 campaign.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp in in the past week.

It is no secret that Mourinho is interested in signing Willian from his former club Chelsea but United are notably absent from the bidding war that has seen Barcelona offer £50m (an offer which was rejected).

"Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality. What they are looking for is an explosive player to liberate Messi", Castles told the Transfer Window podcast. However, he did later add that he is unaware of Barcelona's interest in signing him.

Speaking after Brazil's quarter-final defeat to Belgium on Friday (July 6), the 29-year-old said, "I'm going to Barcelona to talk to my representative about this matter".

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.

But according to Catalan daily Sport, Willian is no longer a priority for the club this summer as Ernesto Valverde wants the club to bring in a more technical midfielder to replace Andres Iniesta.

The Brazilian is now with the national team for the World Cup and is expected to play in their quarter-final clash against Belgium. "I've not received any information about that".
