    Chelsea want a full cash bid for Willian. Must mean they don’t rate Malcolm. Interesting how that works.

    Whos dumber at this point? Barca's offer or Chelsea rejecting the offer?

    Round 2 of who's dumber begins


    Imagine not rating Willian

    Do you ever get bored of constantly preaching the opposite of the truth in this thread? Lol

    I mean tbf he's siding with Barcelona/Chelsea's scouts & football experts over FIFA forum members.

    Ask a random person on the street which side is probably better suited to evaluate a football player and Choepie is looking like a genius lol

    By that logic, we should’ve kept Mou.

    Makes sense TBF, just wondering when they plan on spending the money if a transfer ban is imminent.

    In fact, it completely slipped my mind that you guys have just signed Pulisic, so maybe they don’t want Malcom unnecessarily on their wage books?

    Or the fact that Chelsea just bought a RWer in Pulisic.

    This makes me laugh. I was arguing with a mate a couple years ago that Willian wasn't actually very good and then whenever he scored or got an assist I would get a text about it. Fairly certain he only got like 10 goal contributions in 40 games or something that season so it kind of backed up my point.

    If Barca really are offering that kind of money for Willian then I don't get how Chelsea can turn it down. Don't they only offer 1 year contracts to players over 30 anyway?

    He's still a Dortmund player till the end of the season.

    Nizaar Kinsella and Simon Johnson are both saying we want to keep Willian and that it would take a "significant" cash offer for us to even consider selling him as he'll be important for us in trying to finish in the top four.

    To people in here who think Willian is good:

    - What do you think Willian is good at?
    - How often do you watch Chelsea?

    -Counterplay.
    - not afraid to try to go past his opponent.
    - work ethic
    - a treat with his pace


    Every game thats somewhat appealing.

    Willian joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013 6 month later they thought he was so good they bought Salah to compete with him. Salah has since then gone out to Fiorentina return went to roma permanently returned to the PL and in 5 months back in the PL he outscored Williams total during Williams stay at Chelsea

    In those 5 seasons willing has been a part of 2 title winning sides 14/15 where he scored 2 and assisted 3 in 36 games in a season he was mainly carried by hazard Fabregas and Costa. In contes winning side of 16/17 Willian was 2nd fiddle predominantly to Pedro. Willians aforementioned workrate so good Pedro was decidedly better to play the bulk of the minutes.

    In the 5.5 seasons William has been in England he has averaging less than 5 goals a season which is poor for a winger in the top sides

    A direct winger of Willians type shouldn't have pace as his mainstay attribute if he was at any of the other top 6 clubs he would be out of the door in 12 months. Any other winger in the top 6 has more of a memorable attribute than willian because there are far better players on the market who can provide what William does and morn

    I’m aware, but I’m just saying that’s a pretty valid reason to turn down the offer.

    Overall I still think it is too good of an offer to down, but can’t rule out that they don’t necessarily need another RWer atm

    - Wrong;
    - He's not afraid, but it rarely works;
    - Overrated attribute in a winger;
    - So he's a pace merchant with no end product? Incredible treat, I feel truly blessed to witness him in his prime.

    He didn't. He literally said it's not an excuse for the game tonight or the game before.
