Beckham to battle Barca for Chelsea star?

LaLiga

FC Barcelona are reportedly set for a tug of war with David Beckham's Inter Miami over the signing of Chelsea star Willian.

With Willian's contract at Stamford Bridge set to expire at the end of the season, the Brazil winger is expected to leave the Blues upon the conclusion of the club's participation in the UEFA Champions League campaign next month.

According to Sky Sports, Barca are leading the race to sign the 31-year-old after reportedly meeting his demands of three-year deal, although the LaLiga giants face competition from MLS newcomers Inter Miami.

The US-based club, which is part-owned by former England captain David Beckham, have reportedly offered Willian a lucrative three-and-a-half-year deal in an attempt to lure him away from Europe.

Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in the former Shakhtar Donetsk star, who has recorded 63 goals and 62 assists in 339 appearances since joining Chelsea in 2013.
