Arsenal winger Willian denies knowledge of Barcelona offer

Willian claims he was unaware of any interest from Barcelona last summer.

The Brazilian was a free agent after failing to agree an extension with Chelsea, ending his seven year stint with the west London club.

Barca were touted as a possible destination, but the 33-year-old eventually joined Arsenal.

"There are always rumours, but I didn't know about any other official offer," Willian told FourFourTwo.

"Indeed, there was a lot of talk about Barcelona for the past few seasons, but I wouldn't have gone there just because they're Barca.

"I wouldn't go to any club without hearing about their targets and what they wanted from me.

"It wouldn't be nice to be there or anywhere else if you weren't going to be a big part of the project and didn't play much.

"Arsenal were the only club to show me a project that would fit with my ambitions, and they're one of the biggest clubs in the world."
