Barcelona hope to negotiate a better price for Chelsea forward Willian after having an initial £50m bid knocked back, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly still interested in signing Willian from Chelsea, despite the Blues' hefty valuation of the Brazilian winger.

The Catalan giants are said to have been quoted a figure of more than £70m for Willian, who has been on their radar for the past few months.

Sky Sports News claims that Barcelona have already had a £50m offer knocked back, but they will continue holding talks with Chelsea in the hope of negotiating a better price.

Willian, who scored and assisted a combined 22 goals in 54 outings last season, is currently away on World Cup duty with Brazil and is not involved in discussions.

Despite being used heavily by Antonio Conte in 2017-18, the former Anzhi Makhachkala ace only started just over half of the Blues' league games and was overlooked for selection in the FA Cup final.
