Barcelona have held talks with Willian’s representatives and will make a new attempt to sign the Brazilian from Chelsea, according to Eurosport,

Over the summer it was reported Chelsea had rejected three bids for Willians which was believed to be in excess of £55million

According to La Sexta, Barca remain interested and the club have held a meeting with the 30-year-old’s representatives in an attempt to find a transfer fee which Chelsea would be willing to accept.

The report also claims that Barca would be willing to offer Malcom as part of the deal for Willian.

Barca spent £36.5m on signing Malcom from Bordeaux in the summer but the 21-year-old has made little impact at Camp Nou since his arrival.

Jose Mourinho is interested in Willian, with United understood to have been keeping tabs on the situation since the end of last season.

Barcelona have made the more recent running, however, although they continue to be frustrated in their pursuit of a player who has scored 44 goals in 236 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club from Russian side Anzhi in 2013.
