Willian’s popularity among Chelsea fans has been evident on Twitter, where many have been pleading with the club not to let him go.
Boss Jose Mourinho insisted on Friday that the Brazilian would not be sold, but Saturday’s newspapers once again suggested Willian would be offered to Juventus in a Chelsea move for Paul Pogba.
IMHO, it’d be crazy to use Willian in a deal for Pogba. Would prefer Oscar or Cuadrado. #CFC

Selling Oscar and Willian just for Pogba is silliness. Oscar is a power number 10 and Willian is one of the most hardworking wingers ever.

I will be so upset if Willian leaves, he is a work horse. Runs back time and time again and never gives up. Look at the Everton game…

Anyone who thinks we should part with Willian as part of a Pogba deal needs to give there head a wobble. I’d have Pogba but not at that cost

I’m particularly pleased that Jose clarified in explicit terms that Willian will NOT be leaving Chelsea. Great news. #CFC

However, for some, the chance to land Pogba – rated as one of Europe’s top midfielders – is reason enough to sacrifice Willian.
I’d happily include Willian in the Pogba deal if Juventus are interested in him #CFC

I’d trade Willian for Pogba and not Oscar definitely
