Chelsea’s Willian is ready to leave the Stamford Bridge outfit this summer despite the arrival of Italian manager Maurizio Sarri.

According to the UK Sun report, the Selacao midfielder was not in good terms with ex-boss Antonio Conte last campaign over negative tactics employed by the Premier League side.

However, Sarri's arrival to West London seems to be turning things around as the Italian is expected to change Chelsea’s pattern of play to free-flowing side.

The report further added that despite Sarri’s assurances, the Brazilian has made up his mind to leave Stamford Bridge this transfer window.

Already, Belgium duo of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois are eyeing a potential move away from the London club, thus presenting Sarri with the prospects of losing three key members of the Blues squad, less than a week after taking over from compatriot Antonio Conte.

The former Napoli manager on Wednesday pleaded with unhappy squad members to hand him a chance to turn things around by training with him for 7 days and see how positively the team could flourish during his tenure.

However, Willian appears not concerned with the prospect of a potential summer switch to either Barcelona or Manchester United on the cards.

Meanwhile, previously had reported that at West London, and the lure to team up with other big teams in Europe is proving to nice to ignore for the midfielder.

The report further claimed Willian has been discussing the prospects of the switch to Nou Camp with compatriot Philippe Coutinho during the just-concluded FIFA World Cup.

At the last count, the La Liga champions have tabled two different bids for Willian since the end of last campaign.

The last offer of £60m is close to the amount the ‎Primera División side are eyeing to splash on the midfielder.

The Blues on the other hand would find it pretty tough to hold out for more cash for a player with 24 months left on his present deal.

Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho was recently linked with a move for Willian was he signed has during his spell with The Premier League outfit.

Interestingly, both Manchester United and Barcelona will offer Champions League football to the Brazilian during the new campaign as this move is likely his last opportunity to secure a switch to another big team.

Willian is not expected to resume for pre-season training until July 27, and the new manager has hinted he will not be talking to him until his return.

On the other divide, the Chelsea boss is opting for a face-to-face talk with any of the squad member that wants to leave.

Barcelona and Manchester United are expected to continue their attempts at sealing a deal before then.

Also, the Los Blancos are also fighting through their double interest in the duo of Courtois and Hazard even without Sarri holding talks with his unhappy squad members.
