Willian reveals reason for stay at Chelsea after snubbing transfer to Barcelona

After being linked with Barcelona during the 2018 World Cup, Willian has revealed that he snubbed the move due to still being happy at Chelsea. 

The Brazilian has been incessantly linked with Barcelona with the first coming after the 2018 World Cup and then again most recently when they failed to re-sign Neymar.

Willian joined Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2013 and has been a vital cog in Frank Lampard's team this season.

In an interview with DAZN, Willian revealed why he rejected a move to Barcelona, "The only real official offer I had came from Barcelona, last year, after the World Cup. Barcelona indeed presented an offer to Chelsea but it was rejected.

"That was the only actual time I had to discuss something like this with my family, although we really love it here [in London]. So there were several factors that helped us in staying."
