Chelsea midfielder Willian is ready to extend his stay at the club beyond the summer.
The Brazilian has been linked with a move away for a while now but it seems that he’s keen on a short extension.
Willian has been a key player for Chelsea ever since he joined the club and his decision to stay will come as a major boost for Frank Lampard’s team. It will be interesting to see if his decision affects Chelsea’s transfer plans.
The Blues have been linked with Coutinho recently and if Willian decides to stay, they might not need the Barcelona player. They have already signed Ziyech from Ajax.
Willian is a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge and the fans will be delighted to see him continue at the club.
Earlier there were reports that the two parties could not reach an agreement regarding the extension. Apparently Willian wanted a longer deal. His change in stance will surely help Chelsea close the deal now.
The Blues will be hoping to challenge for the top honours next year and they will need established players like Willian to help them.
The player has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham recently and he had spoken favourably to his previous manager and current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho in an interview. Chelsea must do everything in their power to keep Willian away from their rivals’ clutches.
Willian has helped Chelsea win major trophies during his time at the club and he will be looking to stay and finish off on a high.
