Barcelona have tabled a second bid – believed to be worth up to £53m – for Chelsea winger Willian, as per English media outlets.
Last week, reports emerged of the news of Barcelona’s initial £50m bid for the Brazilian, with talks still ongoing between the two clubs and representatives of the player.
Reports say that the La Liga champions first began efforts to lure Willian to the Nou Camp as long as three months ago.
Manchester United are also interested in signing the versatile winger, who received rave reviews during the World Cup, despite Brazil’s exit at the hands of Belgium in the quarter-finals.
Willian made 55 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea last season, scoring 13 goals.
