Chelsea set to offer Willian a fresh two-year-deal - Barcelona remain interested
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.
