North London side Chelsea have rejected Barcelona's first bid for Brazilian winger Willian according to Sky Sports.
"The Blues have turned down an offer of more than £50m for Willian from Barcelona."
It's reported that Chelsea want £70m for Brazil midfielder.
Nonetheless, the Spanish La Liga champions will have to rival 2018's FA Cup losing finalists of Manchester United, who are also interested in the 29-year-old.
Willian is currently in Russia with the Brazil squad and was part of the starting lineup that beat Mexico by 2-0 as the five-time World Cup winners advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
