Brazilian opens up and officially tells Chelsea fans summer move to happen!?
Willian has all-but conceded his time at Chelsea is coming to an end this summer after he was told his demand of a three-year contract extension is “impossible”.
There has been talk that he could be leaving at the end of the season as reports in the media have suggested that we may not be willing to offer him a new contract because of his age, and may be willing to let him leave the club on a free transfer, with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona eyeing up a possible deal
But despite Hakim Ziyech’s impending arrival in the summer, recent reports have claimed the transfer will not impact Willian, and that the club and the stars representatives are still in talks to try and agree a deal that would allow him to stay at the club for the next few years.
Now he has come out and pretty much ended talk that he could stay:, he told Expediente Futebol: “Really a very beautiful story that I built at this club, I have a very special affection for the fans, for the people who work there and I identified myself a lot here.
“Everyone knows that my contract ends now in a few months, so the renewal is really a difficult thing to happen.
“I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years, I asked for three and it ended there, we didn’t talk anymore, we didn’t negotiate anymore.
“Three years – Chelsea said it would be impossible, so for now theres this difficulty, but nothing is impossible.
“We don’t know what can happen, suddenly we could make a deal and get it right. But what I can say today is that my contract is going over and I will be free to negotiate with any team
IT WILL BE A SHAME IF HE LEAVES AS HE HAS BEEN BRILLIANT FOR US!
