Chelsea have rejected Barcelona's proposal of Malcom plus cash for Willian.

The Stamford Bridge club want straight cash for the 30-year old, who is interested in the move.

The Spanish side were willing to offer Brazilian winger Malcom plus cash for Willian who saw a proposed move to Barcelona fall through last year.

Malcom cost £38million from Bordeaux last summer but has failed to live up to his potential and is being courted by clubs across Europe.

Barcelona bought the 21-year-old after being rebuffed three times in their efforts to prise Willian from Chelsea.

Chelsea rejected offers going up to £65m in July but as Willian has turned 30 and has only 18 months left on contract, they could be tempted with a cash offer of £50m in this window.
