Chelsea midfielder Willian - who is currently representing Brazil at the World Cup - says that now is not the time to discuss a potential switch to Barcelona.

Chelsea midfielder Willian has suggested that he has no intention of thinking about his club future while he is representing Brazil at the World Cup.

Willian has been heavily linked with a move to either Manchester United or Barcelona, with the playmaker allegedly preferring a switch to Camp Nou.

However, despite talk of a big-money switch, Willian has said that he is only focused on helping Brazil try to win a sixth Jules Rimet trophy.

At a press conference, the 29-year-old told reporters: "People speculate a lot and we see a lot of things on the Internet but this is not the time to talk about this.

"I've not received any information about whether [Barca's interest] is true. I'm trying to focus on the national team at the moment."

Willian currently has two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
