Brazil's World Cup quarter-final against Belgium will pit two of Chelsea's best midfielders against each other, but Brazil's Willian told reporters he will be doing everything he can to send his team mate Eden Hazard home early from Russian Federation.
Willian who helped Chelsea to win the FA Cup title last season has been sent out of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup with his national team after losing against Belgium on Friday night, July 6. What they are looking for is an explosive player to liberate Messi.
Chelsea star Willian has insisted he's trying to remain focused on Brazil rather than paying attention to any transfer rumours on his future.
Chelsea are yet to sanction any major deals with the uncertainty over their managerial situation but the next few weeks should give a clear indication - with the transfer window closing on the Thursday prior to the new Premier League season.
The Chelsea forward, 29, is "crazy" about forcing through a move to Barca this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo, who add that Chelsea have quoted the La Liga champions €80 million.
Willian is therefore wanted following the departure of Andres Iniesta and the Barca hierarchy also want him to link up with compatriot Philippe Coutinho.
"I've not received any information about whether [Barca's interest] is true". He, however, didn't give too much away. "Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality".
The Brazilian wants to play alongside Lionel Messi and knows this summer could represent his last chance to fulfil that dream.
