Chelsea fans seem to be divided in opinion on who should be Willian’s replacement should he leave Stamford Bridge in the near future.
La Sexta reported on Monday, via The Sun, that Barcelona, who were keen on signing the winger in the summer, will offer Chelsea a new deal plus the 21-year-old Malcom in order to get the Willian to go the Nou Camp.
Malcom has had a slow start to the season since joining Barcelona from Bordeaux in July and it appears that the Spanish giants are looking to replace him as early as January, although it is a bit unlikely that Maurizio Sarri would let one of his key players leave in the middle of the season.
While some sections of the Chelsea fanbase are excited about the proposed deal, others aren’t that convinced that Malcom is the best candidate to replace Willian and would rather like Ousmane Dembélé to be part of the deal.
Here are some of their best reactions on Twitter:
I wouldnt take the Deal in January… No point disrupting a Team in Good Form

Unpopular but I’d keep Willian. He’s been immense for us.
