Real Sociedad coach Alguacil warns Barcelona off Willian Jose

Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil is confident keeping hold of Willian Jose.

The striker is wanted by Barcelona as an emergency signing after Ousmane Dembele was ruled out for six months.

"If they pay 70 million euros... but I understand that's not going to happen," said Alguacil.

"It's been a lot of days on this topic and he wants to stay with us and I think he'll stay until the end of the season."

Alguacil spoke at a press conference ahead of Real Sociedad facing Mirandes in the Copa del Rey semi-final on Thursday.
