Premier League side Chelsea have been informed by Shakhtar Donetsk that they can sign top Brazilian winger Willian if they offer the right price.
The Daily Mail have reported that Chelsea had an offer of over £16 million pounds turned down in January for the Brazilian international, but a move could well be in the cards for this summer after Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu conceded he would let Willian leave to play for a bigger club.
Willian’s manager Lucescu told the Daily Mail – “They (Chelsea) have played a lot of matches in Europe and they have a very, very good value. If Chelsea pay his (asking price), I am not against letting my players play for the big clubs.
“If they pay the price, he can go. If not, he will remain here because he has another two-and-a-half years on his contract.”
This season Willian has assisted 16 goals and scored five himself in 32 matches in the Ukrainian league for Shakhtar Donetsk.
