Brazilian winger Willian has raised the lid on his future with the London giants in a long interview with Brazilian football newscaster Ale Oliveira. Brazil international opened up on his reasoning for refusing Chelsea's offer of a new two-year agreement and also remove light on the interest in his services.
Spurs have proposed a ‘lucrative’ deal to William, with Chelsea also putting a ‘multi-million’ signing-on-fee on the table for the star. With Jose Mourinho’s side are ahead of local opponents Arsenal in the race to ensure the Brazilian signature on a free transfer.
“There are reports about several teams that may be eager. For the time being, I have had no tangible proposal. But rumors always arise. I’m waiting. My agent hasn’t given me any news yet. I’m waiting for his call. This is what I asked the club for, three years of the agreement. If you give me that, I’ll get the pen and sign the contract tomorrow.”
Willian forward, who will have turned 32 years old by the time next march starts, has been excellent this march so it’s not surprising to hear of the widespread concern in the attacker.
The 31-year-old has bagged 11 goals and nine assists for Chelsea this campaign, the forward’s been solid since with four goals and two assists from seven games since the top-flight’s restart.
The 31-year-old has indicated 63 goals and 62 assists in 337 games across all competitions for the London club. There’s no doubt that the forward can still be a solid supporter to any side in the top half of the Premier League based on his actions in this campaign.
Do you think Willian refusing Chelsea's new two years of the contract is a good option?
