But Willian has now become an important part of the plans of new Stamford Bridge boss Frank Lampard and is happy to commit his future to the West Londoners.

The 31-year-old, who joined the Blues from Russian side FC Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013, would have been out of contract in the summer.

Barca chiefs, who had a 55m bid rejected in 2018, were also hoping to pounce then had they not wrapped up a cut-price deal in January.

Juventus were also chasing the South American.

But the attacker has spoken about signing a new contract.

The 30million signing has played 11 games so far this term, scoring 11 goals.

He has scored 29 Premier League goals in 144 starts.
