What might have begun as an incredible rumor of a day's time could stand on a solid, solid basis. According to Brazilian UOL Esporte, Willian's staff is in Paris yesterday, expecting an agreement between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain for Willian's sale to the French club.
Their representatives believe that a 40-million-euro PSG bid would be enough to facilitate Chelsea's idea of allowing Willian to go this winter, especially in the light of the remaining year and half a day in his current contract. The previous offers, made by clubs from Barcelona and China, have been rejected by Blues.
It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will change attitude towards Willian just a few weeks after rejecting a 50m-pound package from Barcelona, which included coin and Brazilian counterpart Malcom. But today is the end of the day and we can not fully account for those events. At least not when PSG is involved and their tendency to defy UEFA's decisions on financial fair play.
