Willian has been asked about speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona and says he’s heard all about the rumors.

Speculation claims Barcelona have had a big bid rejected by Chelsea and that the Brazilian is super keen on moving to the club.

The Chelsea star talked about how he’s good friends with Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho which is likely to fuel speculation he’s heading for Barca.

“Coutinho and Paulinho besides being fantastic players are two great friends of mine,” he said.

“I’m following the information about FC Barcelona on the Internet but I still do not know anything.

“Now is not the time to talk about that because I am very focused on the World Cup. Coutinho? He has an extraordinary quality, he’s making a great World Cup and I’m sure he will continue to do so. “

Willian’s back in action with Brazil on Friday when the Selecao take on Belgium in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
