The west London club rejected three bids from the Catalan giants last summer including a £65million offer for the Brazilian.

On the other hand, Malcom has the same fate as his fellow countryman after failing to live up to the billing at the Camp Nou following his £38 million move from Bordeaux.

Willian whose form has declined this year has only 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and could leave for free next season.

And the swap deal will be of huge benefit to Chelsea as the Blues will not need to find a replacement for their 30-year-old winger.
