Chelsea are preparing to offer winger Willian a new contract with the Brazilian's current deal set to expire next summer. 

The 31-year-old is coming to the end of his deal with the Blues - he's entered his final year - but has been offered a chance to extend his stay in West London after seven years at the club.

As per the Daily Mail, Chelsea are willing to offer Willian a new two-year-deal, which will break the club's over-30s policy once again. 

The club tend to offer those older than 30 one-year-deals but they broke that trend when David Luiz extended his deal before departing in the summer to Arsenal. 

Reports in Spain suggest Barcelona are plotting a move to swoop Willian to the Camp Nou in the summer if he opts to not sign a new deal with Frank Lampard's side.

Willian has been linked with a move to Barcelona previously, and he revealed that he has already received an offer from the Spanish giants previously.

"The only real official offer I had came from Barcelona, last year, after the World Cup.

"Barcelona indeed presented an offer to Chelsea but it was rejected. That was the only actual time I had to discuss something like this with my family, although we really love it here [London]. So there were several factors that helped us in staying."

Chelsea have less than six weeks to go until he is free to sign a pre-agreement in January to join a club in the summer.
