Maurizio Sarri highlights the importance of Willianto Chelsea

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has highlighted the importance of Willian to the Blues amid the recent speculation linking him with Barcelona. The Brazil international had been the subject of three failed bids from the Spanish champions during the summer and reports have recently indicated that the Blues have snubbed a player-plus-cash deal from the Blaugrana for their player.

Amidst this, Sarri has been regularly questioned about the attacker’s position with the club though the stance from the club remains unchanged. In a report covered by Sky Sports News, the Italian tactician clarified that he has no clue regarding the transfer proceedings but he has no desire to part ways with Willian before the end of the month.

Arthur praying for Neymar’s return to Barcelona

Barcelona midfielder Arthur has said that he would welcome the prospect of working with Neymar at the Camp Nou in the future. The Brazil international made a world-record switch to Paris Saint-Germain from the Catalan giants last year but he has already been touted for a probable comeback amid suggestions that he is unsettled at Parc des Princes.

 

 

When asked on this regard, Arthur revealed that he has a close personal relationship with his Brazilian compatriot and he is praying for the forward to make a switch return to the Spanish champions, he told Mundo Deportivo: “I personally am praying for him to come because he is a superstar, it is indisputable.

“I think that the more great players the team has, the better. Personally, I’m doing a lot of work to get him back, but he has his life, he knows what he’s doing and I do not know how deep those negotiations are, if there are options for him to come or not. But he is a personal friend and a professional that I admire a lot and would be very happy if he could come back here.”

Neymar had been constantly linked with Real Madrid during the summer shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo made the shock move away from the European champions. However, Les Parisiens’ hierarchy thereafter clarified that they have no concerns with the commitment of the attacker but this has not entirely ceased the speculation going around.

The former Santos graduate joined the French heavyweights during the previous season with the aim of potentially leading their attack while competing for the Ballon d’Or. Butthings have not paved the way as planned with Kylian Mbappe currently posing a strong competitor alongside him for the individual accolades in years to come. Neymar currently has more than three years remaining on his contract with the club.

Mazinho – Rafinha could part ways with Barcelona in January

Rafinha’s father Mazinho has suggested that the Brazilian could make way from Barcelona when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year. The 25-year-old has recently been in the Blaugrana mix, having been involved in three of the club’s previous five league matches but there remain genuine concerns regarding the gametime with the Catalan giants.

Speaking to Radio Galicia Sport, Mazinho highlighted that his son is far from pleased with the current situation with the Spanish champions and an exit could be on the cards when the transfer window reopens in less than 45 days’ time, he said: “It’s crazy, he can’t understand anything. Only the coach knows what he has or doesn’t have. The truth is that we’re trying to get Rafa into a situation where he plays regularly. We have to look for an exit because it’s really complicated for him here [at Barcelona]. It’s been basically two years hardly playing and he needs a club to give him 30 or 40 games a season.”
