The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Willian this season, and so this report is seriously concerning them…
According to the Express, Chelsea are willing to sell Willian this summer – with the Brazilian not a major part of Antonio Conte’s plans – whilst Willian himself is also ready to consider his future at the end of the season.
It must be said that Willian has endured a reduced role at Stamford Bridge this season, with the emergence of Pedro alongside Eden Hazard forcing him to the sidelines under Antonio Conte. Whilst he has impressed when he has played, Pedro’s fine form, in particular, has forced Willian out of the team regularly.
Of course, it is disappointing to see, given how vital the Brazilian was for the Blues last season. A regular scorer, assister and set-piece master, Chelsea would have struggled even more last year without his contributions – and so for him to see his significance reduce so much this year is sad to see.
That being said, if he isn’t a part of Conte’s plans – our landlord thinks that a move away definitely makes sense, with Man Utd reportedly keen.
