Fresh from winning the Premier League title last Sunday and possibly The FA Cup on Saturday, Brazilian superstar, Willian, has reiterated his desire to see out his contract at Stamford Bridge which currently runs till 2020.
The player has played second fiddle to former Barcelona man, Pedro all season hand has been rumoured to be keen on a summer move to Manchester United to get reunited with former boss, Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese is a keen admirer of the former Shakhtar man, as he believes he was part of the select few that didn’t allow their standards last season in what was a disastrous campaign.
After initially starting as first choice right winger at the beginning of the season, a change in formation by manager,Antonio Conte has coincided with an upturn in form for Spaniard, Pedro, who has been preferred for his output, while Willian’s graft has been deemed unnecessary due to the protection given to the defence by the high flying wingbacks.
Speaking to Evening Standard, the 28 year old said, “Yes [I want to play here next year]. I have a contract with Chelsea until 2020 and I am very happy here”.
Willian is a fast winger capable of playing anywhere across the three behind the striker. He has been praised for his dead ball abilities, dribbling and extreme pace over short distances. Despite his lack of regular playing time in the Premier League this season he has scored 8 goals.
