As the World Cup enters its latter stages, clubs all over Europe are plotting their transfer moves ahead of the upcoming season.

"I have seen some speculation about Barcelona on the Internet, but this isn't the time to talk about that", he said at a press conference with the Brazil team.

"I have not received any information that this is true".

Brazilian worldwide, Paulinho, who plays in the midfield for the Catalan giants, confirmed that he has offers from other clubs and will soon discuss them with Barcelona. However, he did later add that he is unaware of Barcelona's interest in signing him.

When asked about joining his fellow Brazilians Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho at Camp Nou, Willian said: "Well, they are excellent players with a lot of quality".

All three players have joined the club in the past year but while record signing Coutinho will not be sold, Paulinho and Mina have been linked with moves away.

Brazil's disappointment at the World Cup, eliminated at the quarter-final stage by Belgium, has strengthened Neymar's desire to push through a move to Real Madrid this summer in order to fulfil his ambition of winning the Ballon d'Or.

"I'm not aware of any bids", Jair Mina told RAC1.

But there has been more talk about Willian moving to Spain in the ongoing window and Barcelona have been reportedly preparing a cash plus player bid for the Brazilian. "He is convinced he will get the chance to do big things and our idea is that he stays where he is".

Everton are interested in Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer.
