The former Shakhtar Donetsk star joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013 from Anzhi Makhachkala. He has been a key member of the Chelsea team over the years, and has made a total of 330 appearances for the club and has scored 63 goals and made 62 assists so far for the London side.
Willian will become a free agent when his contract expires in few weeks time. According to reports from his @Metro Willian would be willing to leave the London club as a free agent this summer unless his requirement of a Three years deal is met. The 31 years old winger has this to say regarding his future,
“For the time being, I have had no concrete proposal. But rumours always arise. I’m waiting, My agent hasn’t given me any news yet. I’m waiting for his call. Chelsea only offered me two years and I asked for three. My goal in the next contract is to sign for three years. This is what I asked the club for, three years of contract. If you give me that, I’ll get the pen and sign the contract tomorrow”
Chelsea FC runs in a policy of not offering more than a two years deal to players over the age of 30 which is understandable in the case of Willian. Though the Brazilian has been a key member of the Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, putting in impressive performances on a consistent basis since the restart. But the club is still very reluctant to meet his demands of Three years contract as its against the club’s policy.
There has been rumours of interest from Chelsea’s neighbours Arsenal for the service of the Brazilian giving that he share the same agent with David Liuz. And their agent is a very good friend to Arsenal’s technical director Edu. It will be interesting to see how the situation turns out in few weeks time as the transfer market will officially start in England later this month.
Willian Borges Da Silva has won the FA Cup, Europa League and two English Premier League titles during his time spell in Stamford Bridge, including the 2016/17 crown under Antonio Conte.
