End all speculation! Lampard opens up and announces he wants midfielder Willian at Chelsea this summer
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed that he is keen to extend Willian’s contract if the Premier League campaign restarts.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media regarding the future of Willian over the past few months, with all indications suggesting that he will indeed be leaving the club during the summer window.
And with Willian reportedly keen to stay in London, reports have suggested that he could make the move across London and join one of those other sides that are nowhere at out level.
But with the 31-year-old Brazilian set to become a free agent this summer, Lampard has now opened up and revealed that he is keen to try and keep hold of Willian.
Lampard told Sky Sports: “It is still uncertain if and when play will get underway. We have big players [out of contract] so that’s something I’m obviously looking at very carefully.
“The ones who are out of contract here have been great servants for the club, and actually have a lot of feeling for the club.
“Of course they’ll be concerned about themselves, in terms of how training is now is and if the pre-season is a rush they’re going to have to make sure they’re alright.
“So it’s going to have to be something we have to look at, hopefully we can make that arrangement can be made so they can stay with us.
“I would love the squad to look as it has all season, but we’ll have to see how that works.”
Look, we are big fans of Willian and believe he still has something to give the side, so should he get a new contract?
Answer: HELL YES!!
