Should Chelsea have accepted Barcelona's 'Malcom plus cash' offer for Willian?

You have to call the club and ask about the market.

Asked about Barcelona's reported interest in Willian, Sarri was quoted by Sky Sports as saying on Friday: "I didn't receive anything yesterday".

Despite only signing for Barcelona a few months ago, his future has been subject to intense transfer speculation.

The Blues splashed major cash on Christian Pulisic for a summer arrival, and it is risky to expect Malcom to return to his exceptional Ligue 1 ways via a third league in less than a year.

Barcelona could look to sell playmaker Philippe Coutinho just 12 months after his record-breaking move from Liverpool as they bid to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp.

Despite his limited first team opportunities at Liverpool this season, the former Lille star has been able to make an impact on the Reds team chasing honours in both the Premier League and Champions League.

It is believed the LaLiga leaders are now ready to offer €42 million (R669 million) plus Malcom for the Chelsea winger. He already has a €38m transfer fee around him and he would have been a suitable replacement for the ageing and under-performing Blues winger.

But, Chelsea have swiftly rejected Barcelona's offer for a couple of reasons. The cash could have also been utilized to sign another player as well. Secondly, Sarri is unwilling to let go of the player he rates so highly.

But Barcelona are preparing a mammoth bid worth £50m in the hope of luring the attacker away from Stamford Bridge.
