Sarri says ‘it’s impossible’ for Willian to leave Chelsea in January

Sarri says ‘it’s impossible’ for Willian to leave Chelsea in January

Chelsea coach Maurizo Sarri spoke about the news stories linking winger Willian to FC Barcelona in a part exchange deal with Malcom. However, considering the current circumstances, it would have been wise if Chelsea had considered the offer. They eventually zeroed in on Malcom as the alternate option to the Brazilian, but the 21-year-old has struggled to settle in at Camp Nou, having been restricted to just three starts so far this season.

The Brazilian only moved to Camp Nou in the summer and has found it hard to make a major impact, scoring two goals in his 10 appearances.

When it was suggested to Sarri that he would not want to lose Willian, the Italian said: "Of course not, because Willian for us is really very important".

Chelsea have scored the least goals (36) out of the top six and it's Willian's contribution that's most concerning.

The 17-year-old driver, her 16-year-old passenger and the occupants of the other auto all escaped serious injury. When the movie first came out, Netflix gave a clear warning to viewers to not try the unsafe challenge.

Chelsea rejected the approach on Thursday evening, though, leaving the club's fans frustrated and wondering why they decided against it.

On the other hand, Malcom is still young and has huge expectations surrounding him. Willian has four goals and six assists in 31 matches this season, but has one year left on his contract after this season. He already has a €38m transfer fee around him and he would have been a suitable replacement for the ageing and under-performing Blues winger.

However, the Brazilian's future continues to be shrouded in uncertainty, with Barcelona renewing their interest in the Chelsea superstar.
