The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are big fans of midfield ace Willian, and this latest revelation from the Brazilian has filled them with delight…
Over the last few months, Willian has been touted with an exit from Stamford Bridge, with Man Utd reportedly keen. A departure would, in some ways, make sense – with the Brazilian rarely a starter ahead of Pedro under Antonio Conte.
However, Willian, in an interview with the Evening Standard, has revealed that he wants to stay at Chelsea next season: “Yes [I want to play here next year]. I have a contract with Chelsea until 2020 and I am very happy here”.
Unsurprisingly, this has left the fans in the Transfer Tavern chanting Willian’s name, with the winger a real fan favourite at Stamford Bridge. The standout figure at the club during a tough spell in the 2015/16 season, the Brazilian has endeared himself to supporters, and many want him to end his career at Stamford Bridge.
Despite his lack of game time this year, Willian, who reportedly earns £110k-per-week, has continued to impress – picking up 8 goals in the English top flight.
