GETTY Transfer News LIVE updates Arsenal are set to sign Sokratis Papastathopoulos

Manchester United wing target Willian is not a priority for Barcelona at the moment as the club focus on signing a technical midfielder.

"You'd need to replace them with world-class stars and that will cost a lot of money".

"He is a very humble player and I like being with him on a daily basis at club level".

"People speculate a lot".

The offer has come after the departure of Andres Iniesta, and the club are looking for a player like Willian who is able to link up with Coutinho up top.

"I have seen some speculation about Barcelona on the Internet, but this isn't the time to talk about that", he said at a press conference with the Brazil team.

China Trade War Starts
The US economy's strength is emboldening the Trump administration to play hardball in its trade offensive against China. He threatened a 10 percent levy on an additional $US200b of Chinese goods if Beijng "refuses to change its practices".

Willian's relationship with Antonio Conte has broken down and is beyond fix, most evident by the Brazilian's Instagram post consisting of trophies hiding the current Chelsea head coach during the FA Cup celebrations.

"I have not received any information that this is true".

With Willian heading towards his thirties, Chelsea could be tempted to sell if they receive an attractive proposal. The Blues will also face a tough summer in order to keep hold of their key players that want an exit from Stamford Bridge.

Since his time as Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has been an admirer of Brazil global Willian, and he feels he should sign him for the Red Devils this summer.

The Blues' managerial situation is still uncertain as well, but Maurizio Sarri finally looks set to be installed as Antonio Conte's successor, per Darren Lewis in the Mirror.
