PSG and Barcelona go head-to-head for Chelsea midfielder Willian

PSG and Barcelona are going head-to-head for Chelsea midfielder Willian.

Mundo Deportivo says the Brazilian, who has been at Stamford Bridge since 2013, is out-of-contract at the end of this season and a new deal now looks to be off the table.

He looks likely to leave on a free transfer and two of the biggest clubs in Europe are keen to sign the 31-year-old.

PSG believe Willian's versatility would suit Thomas Tuchel's side perfectly.

On the other hand, the involvement of agent Kia Joorabchian could facilitate a move to Barcelona, with Philippe Coutinho moving in the opposite direction.

Both clubs are monitoring Willian's situation closely.
