Willian needs to talk with Frank Lampard before making a decision on his Chelsea future, according to Brazil legend Rivaldo.
Willian is one of the few world class players at the club right now, but it seems that his last game at the club could be in the FA Cup as there is much speculation in the media that he could be let go after failing to agree a new contract.
It seems that the only thing holding up a potential deal is the length of the contract, with Willian keen on staying at the club for a further three-years, But Chelsea are only prepared to hand him a two-year contract.
But amid all the speculation, Rivaldo has told Willian that he needs to speak with Lampard before making an official decision about his future, He told Betfair: “Willian is at the end of his contract with Chelsea and Arsenal seem to be interested in signing him.
“But he’s having an excellent season and Chelsea are interesting in keeping him.
“Frank Lampard and the board need to inform the player about their plans for him next season.
“Chelsea are signing players and, if Willian will not be a first choice pick, then he probably would prefer to leave.
“Willian will have many interested clubs, but I think he would prefer to learn about Chelsea’s plans first before taking a decision about his future.”
It will be a shame to see Willian to leave the club, so hopefully some kind of deal can be reached in the coming days.
