Chelsea striker Willian has insisted that he never wanted to depart from Stamford Bridge during this summers transfer window.
The 30-year-old has found bak of the net 13 times and provided 12 assists in 55 games for the Blues in all competitions last campaign.
The South American forward was heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer, but, with Man United, Real Madrid and Barcelona all credited with an interest.
Brazil international forward has played down suggestions that he was keen to depart Chelsea ahead of the 2018-19 season, and is now targeting ‘another five years’ at the club.
“A lot of people they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never. Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here,” Willian told Chelsea’s official website.
“When I arrived here my plan was to stay here as long as possible and now I am here five years I hope to stay five more! I know I have two years of contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League.
“I am very happy to be here five years. I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments
