Spanish giants Barcelona, are looking to sign Chelsea winger Willian on free transfer as the Brazilian contract ends next summer.
Mundo Deportivo reports that Barca have been interested in signing him for a decade, since he was at Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.
Being linked with Willian over the summer transfer window, the Spanish giants could look to pounce with his contract expiring next summer.
In other development, Manchester United are considering a January move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to further improve his squad.
Following a disastrous start to the season for the Red Devils, additions to the squad could be made as soon as the winter window given Solskjaer retains the backing of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
United are aware that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to avoid losing Eriksen on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.
And, if United and Tottenham can agree a cut-price fee for the Denmark international, then he will move to Old Trafford at the start of 2020.
United considered a £70 million ($86m) move for Eriksen during the summer transfer window but were not convinced he was willing to join them as he held out for a transfer to Real Madrid.
However, Eriksen is understood to prefer a move to Spain, and ideally Real Madrid, and United’s current standing is well behind other traditionally big European sides.
There is also the likelihood that the playmaker may have to compromise on the level of wages he could otherwise demand as a player moving on a free transfer
Despite reports that United wish to tie down Paul Pogba to a new contract, Eriksen could be a direct replacement for the discontented France midfielder, who continues to be linked with a move to Madrid.
