Barcelona will make their first official bid for Chelsea star and Manchester United target Willian next week.
Barcelona and United have been tracking Willian this summer, with the understanding that he wants to leave Chelsea.
And Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona have not actually lodged an official offer for Willian yet.
MD have refuted a Sky Sports claim made earlier this week and that a bid was on the table.
Instead, the Catalan club has signaled their intention to bid for Willian via his agent Kia Joorabchian.
The agent has relayed this information to Chelsea, who now await an offer.
It is claimed Barca will make their move next week and are aware of Willian’s openness to secure a switch.
