Chelsea reject Barcelona bid for Willian - and offer of Brazilian forward Malcom

The 21-year-old right wing has only played 363 minutes for Barca, however, scoring only two goals while suffering a pair of short-term injuries.

Willian saw a proposed move to the Nou Camp fall through previous year while Malcom was a £38m buy from Bordeaux.

Barcelona could look to sell playmaker Philippe Coutinho just 12 months after his record-breaking move from Liverpool as they bid to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona are considering a second bid for Chelsea forward Willian, according to reports.

Chelsea rejected the approach on Thursday evening, though, leaving the club's fans frustrated and wondering why they decided against it.

How Much Tim Tebow Spent on His Fiancée's Engagement Ring
Experts at JamesAllen.com told Page Six Style that the ring could easily cost $1 million through traditional retailers. Tim Tebow and longtime girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters are engaged, according to People magazine.

But Chelsea have apparently turned the offer down, despite the fact that Willian only has 18 months left on his contract and the fact that Malcom could form part of an exciting new era alongside Christian Pulisic and potentially Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Malcom cost Barca €41million and his slow start has seen a number of transfer and loan links crop up, with Everton originally thought to be front-runners before Marco Silva denied interest. He already has a €38m transfer fee around him and he would have been a suitable replacement for the ageing and under-performing Blues winger. The cash could have also been utilized to sign another player as well.

The Chelsea boss then explained how Willian can further up his displays on the pitch.

There were series of drama between the Premier League club, the La Liga side as well as Willian, who was believed to have been planning a move behind the scenes to Spain.
