Guangzhou Evergrande hoping to lure Willian from Chelsea with £240k-a-week wages

Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande are preparing an astronomical offer for Chelsea's Willian according to reports.

The Daily Mirror suggests that the Brazilian attacking midfielder will be offered around £240,000 per week which would double what he currently earns at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old has already seen fellow countryman Ramires lured away from West London to earn big money in the Far East and Guangzhou are attempting to do the same with the former Shakhtar Donetsk star.

It is understood that Guangzhou, managed by former Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, will offer £50million to Chelsea this summer in a bid to make Willian their fourth samba star, joining Paulinho, Alan Carvalho and Ricardo Goulart.
