Willian's time at Chelsea is over

Chelsea are going to lose Willian as his contract expires in the summer and he most probably won't renew it.

 

Willian says that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge, but a disagreement in the length of his contract will likely see the 31-year- old Brazilian move to another club.

 

In a recent interview to Fox Sports Willian revealed that he is open to negotiate with other clubs.

 

"I've built something fantastic at Chelsea,” said the 31-year-old player.


 

"Everyone knows my contract is up in a few months and it looks like it'll be difficult to secure an extension. I think it's unlikely that I'll renew because Chelsea offered me a two-year deal, I asked for three and it ended there.

 

"We don't know what might happen. We might suddenly reach an agreement, but what I can say today is that my contract is up and I'll be free to negotiate with any club."

 

What's next for Willian?


 

Willian was linked with a move to the Brazilian club Corinthians, but the player said that he wants to stay in Europe.

 

"At the moment I'm not thinking about going back to Brazil and my aim is to stay in Europe," said Willian.

 

Some of the European clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham and Juventus are interested in the player and are currently monitoring the situation around Willian's contract.

 

Barcelona have tried to sign him in 2018, but Chelsea refused to sell him, so now it is possible that they will sign him as a free agent.


Paris Saint-Germain is also an option for the Brazilian as it was reported that they are interested in him.

 

Of course, Willian always has the option to go to his first club Corinthians, but for now his target remains Europe.

 

Willian spent seven years with the Blues. For that period of time at Stamford Bridge, the 31-year-old won the Premier League two times, also won the Europa League, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
