Barcelona offer 3 options for Chelsea to choose from as a part of a swap deal for Brazilian superstar

Chelsea will be offered a player as Barcelona are willing to complete a cash plus player deal for winger Willian. A report from Mundo Deportivo (h/t Daily Star) claims that the Catalan giants are not willing to spend €80m on the 29-year-old Willian and will try to secure a deal for the player by throwing in one of their fringe stars.

Former Spurs man Paulinho is one player who could be thrown into the deal as the player also shares the same agent as Willian.

Another player who is being touted as an option is Andre Gomes, who has not had the best of times since moving to the Camp Nou from Valencia.

The third player in the list is Brazilian midfielder Rafinha, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan.

While Willian does have a couple of years left on his contract, we could cash in on him really well and out of the three midfield options provided by Barcelona, Rafinha could be the best of the lot.

Rafinha might be older than Andre Gomes by a year but he did play a lot of football for the Italian giants last season, making 17 appearances in the second half of the campaign.

The 25-year-old would also strengthen our midfield next season given that he can take up a more attacking role and we can push Barcelona to pay a decent amount as part of the deal to take Willian. Losing Willian would be a major blow to our side given how much quality he brings to the attack.

But we have to do the best we can and selling the Brazilian to a club from another league is a better option than sending him to another Premier League club.
