Willian will exit at the end of the season and Arsenal is set for a shocking move.
The future of Chelsea star Willian’s remains uncertain at the Stamford Bridge and the ongoing negotiations have not reached an end. The transfer rumors linking him with Arsenal has fueled up the transfer speculations.
The 31-year-old is playing for his final days at Chelsea and could be leaving at the end of the season. Brazilian winger’s contract will expire this summer, while the talks are continued about a potential new deal.
With over two months of the season remaining the probability of the Brazilian star leaving Stamford Bridge increases gradually. He refused to sign the new deal and it was assumed that he wants to sign a new three-year deal at Chelsea. Whereas, so far they have offered a new two-year deal.
Blues manager Frank Lampard mentioned that talks with Willian are “an ongoing conversation”. Hence it is not confirmed if he will be leaving Samford Bridge at the end of the season.
The Brazil international joined Chelsea in 2013. He chose to complete a move to West London over a transfer to Spurs from Anzhi Makhachkala. Reports suggest that his time with the Blues will soon be over. Moreover, Chelsea’s latest offer is not convincing enough to make him stay.
Willian is linked with a host of European clubs as potential suitors.
Reports say a number of potential suitors have lined up to try and get his services for the season 2020/21. Arsenal alongside local rivals Manchester United, Juventus, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also closely observing the player for a free transfer this summer.
Now that the time of his exit from Blues is possibly near his recent comment could give a big boost to the Gunners in the race to sign him.
Willians statement in an interview.
Willian stated he is happy at Chelsea and his family is settled in London. Now he wants to stay proving his commitment by becoming a British citizen.
“I have played for Chelsea for more than six years now, and I can honestly say that I am very happy here.”
“If you ask my wife if she wants to leave London, she’ll say no. My daughters feel the same way. Of course, Brazil is Brazil, right? It’s our home, our culture. We always feel good when we go there on holiday and see family and friends. But London is my second home.”
