Barcelona could look to sell playmaker Philippe Coutinho just 12 months after his record-breaking move from Liverpool as they bid to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp.
So there you have it - Chelsea think Willian, 30, is worth more than £50m and they don't want to lose a key player, despite the fact they'd be getting a top talent in return.

Malcom has barely played since signing from Bordeaux this summer.
Despite his struggles though, it is still somewhat surprising that the youngster's future at Barcelona is up in the air, with a January exit being mooted.
