Willian’s future at Premier League club Chelsea is still unclear
The Brazilian wants a further three-year contract with the club
Blues are only willing to extend the Brazilian’s contract for a maximum of two years Brazilian play maker Willian recently put pen to paper to extend his contract at the club until the end of July, however his future is still unclear.
Reports have it that Pedro may likely join Roma next season, but reports that Willian’s attempt to move to a Chinese club has stalled.
GOAL are reporting that with the failed discussion of the Brazilian and the unnamed Chinese club, Chelsea are looking to retain Willain who is poised to become the club’s longest serving Brazilian.
Willian earlier disclosed that the Blues are not going about change their mind of giving him more than a 2-year contract as against the 3-year deal he wants.
Despite claiming his career at the Blues remain uncertain, Willian signed a short-term extension so he can see out the remainder of the campaign as the Premier League season is due to run at least into July.
That in itself goes against the club’s old general rule of only giving one more year to players over the age of 30.
They did sign Olivier Giroud in 2018 and then handed David Luiz a two-year deal before selling him to Arsenal last year.
Willian’s recent goalscoring form has been impeccable for Chelsea helping them push further for a Premier League top-four finish this season.
The Brazilian winger has now become the first player in the history of the English topflight division to score in every calendar month.
Since the return of the three-month break, the 31-year-old has been in fine form for the Blues, scoring three goals in their last three games.
The former Shakthar Donestk star scored the match-winner against Man City from a penalty that handed Liverpool the title at the end of June.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea winger Pedro has reportedly agreed to a mega deal to join Italian giant Roma at the end of the ongoing 2019/20 Premier League season while the Blues want to finish among the top four.
Pedro is said to have agreed to stay at Chelsea until the end of the season so as for him to leave the London-based giants for free when the transfer window opens.
Brazilian winger Willian will also be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season with reports already linking him with a move to Arsenal.
