Chelsea £120,000 a-week star considers Stamford Bridge exit

By | February 4, 2019

Willian is struggling to agree a new deal at Chelsea and he is understood to be considering leaving the club.

The Brazilian winger was the subject of transfer interest from PSG on Deadline Day, with the French giants viewing him as a temporary replacement for Neymar.

However, the Blues held firm as they look to secure Champions League football for next season with Willian viewed as a key player under Maurizio Sarri.

The 30-year-old has played in 23 of Chelsea’s 24 Premier League games under the Italian’s management, proving himself as an integral part in the current side which the club does not want to lose.

According to UOL, the Blues have offered the player a one-year contract extension on his current deal which expires in 2020.

However, Willian wants a three-year deal, but given Chelsea’s policy of only offering players over the age of 30 one-year contracts, he looks unlikely to have his demands met.

But the forward remains confident he will receive a bumper deal from the likes of PSG or Barcelona if he can’t achieve his requirements at the Stamford Bridge.
