Barcelona make second bid for Willian

Today’s rumors start with news that Barcelona have apparently made a second bid of up to £53 million for Chelsea’s Willian.

According to Sky Sports News, Barcelona have been trying to land the Brazilian for three months now and talks are ongoing between both clubs and the player’s representatives.

Contact made with Eden Hazard

Over at Sport the talk is also about a Chelsea player but this time it’s Eden Hazard who is attracting the headlines.

The club first made contact last week and apparently discovered he wants to leave Chelsea and would be interested in a move to the Camp Nou.

Hazard’s wages are said to be “high but not astronomical” but Real Madrid will probably also show interest when they miss out on both Neymar or Kylian Mbappe.

Barcelona close in on Adrien Rabiot

Barcelona are also said to be closing in on a deal for Adrien Rabiot. Marca reckon the club is now in advanced talks with PSG over the midfielder.

New manager Thomas Tuchel has informed Rabiot he won’t be a guaranteed starter next season which hasn’t gone down too well.

PSG are prepared to cash in on the 23-year-old who has just a year left on his current deal.

Everton want Mina and Digne

Over in the UK the Telegraph brings word that Everton want both Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina.

The defenders are top of the Toffees’ summer shopping list and the club are keen to negotiate a deal with Barca.

Kante in Barcelona’s sights

And finally today we end with news that N’Golo Kante has also emerged as a target for Barcelona.

Gianluca Di Marzio reckons that Jorginho’s potential arrival at Stamford Bridge could be bad news for the Frenchman.

Barcelona want to bring him to the Camp Nou and are willing to throw Andre Gomes in as part of the deal, which all sounds pretty bonkers to me.
