Chelsea unconcerned by Willian absence, player flying back Tuesday

Man Utd Transfer News Willian ‘bid accepted’ Kane odds slashed Bailly decision

GETTY Man Utd Transfer News Chelsea have accepted a £67m bid for Willian Tuttosport claim

There were reports that the Spanish giants had submitted a £100 million offer to sign Willian and Thibaut Courtois - with Willian making up £65m of the offer.

Those behind the scenes at the club are said to be concerned that Willian's situation could mirror that of Diego Costa last summer.

Willian had been linked with a move to Barcelona too but Jose Mourinho is keen to link up with a player that he had worked with during his second spell at Chelsea.

Brazil were dumped out of the World Cup by Belgium at the quarter-final stage, meaning Willian has already had more than three weeks off.

Brazil and Chelsea star Willian has been reported absent from training as rumours of a Real Madrid bid for the player continue to grow.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona are chasing the winger.

Club officials knew he was returning late and now expect Willian back at Cobham on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has been a primary target for the position this season, along with Internazionale's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, and Man United could be getting their man.

'[Leaving?] No, I'm back to England.

"I am very happy at Chelsea and I am very happy living in London", he is quoted by the Mirror as telling Globo Esporte.

But it is thought Willian may be trying to put pressure on Chelsea for a new contract, with his current £125,000-a-week deal due to run out in two years.
