Barcelona look set to have swap deal with Chelsea

The Nou Camp giants are desperately looking for a replacement of ageing Luis Suarez. According to recent report, they want this Chelsea star and are ready to do a swap deal.

There has been concern regarding form of Luis Suarez. Since moving to Barcelona, the Uruguayan is scoring less goals each season. It has led to Barcelona hunting for a young striker. With transfer market around the corner it seems the La Liga champions are ready to have swap deal with Chelsea for this star.

Barcelona are ready to offer it’s summer signing Malcom to Chelsea in order to lure Willian. The Brazilian has been a subject of interest for the Catalan giants. The Brazilian winger was tipped to leave Chelsea during the summer. Manchester United and Barcelona were keen to lure Willian. The La Liga champions submitted a bid for Willian during summer transfer window but Chelsea rejected it. New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is adamant to keep Willian at Stamford Bridge.

However, according to recent reports, the La Liga champions are willing to pay £75m to lure Willian, not only that new summer signing Malcom could be included in the deal to drop the transfer fee. Malcom hasn’t really fit the Barcelona squad since his arrival from Bordeaux. The 21-year-old has only played 25 minutes in La Liga this season. Despite Messi injured, Malcom still couldn’t book a place in the playing XI. Malcom has played whole 90 minutes only once this season.

The Brazilian came from the bench to score for the Catalan giants against Inter during the Champions League. Malcom seems open to leaving Barcelona despite joining the Catalan giants in summer. His agent is in contact with various clubs discussing a potential move. Willian on the other had a terrific run for Chelsea. In the absence of Eden Hazard, the Brazilian has been the goal scoring man for the Blues.

Author’s take:

Willian has previously said he is happy at Stamford Bridge. There is concrete interest from Barcelona regarding Willian. However the transfer won’t be the solution to Barcelona’s problem. Willian is happy at Chelsea so it means Barcelona would again fail to pursue him. However, at this moment, the La Liga giants should give more time to Dembele and Malcom and give them confidence.
