Willian faces transfer decision as Chelsea star weighs up offers from five clubs

Five clubs have made offers for Willian and the Chelsea winger is set to make a decision on his future after this Saturday’s FA Cup final.

 

His agent Kia Joorabchian confirmed two of the contracts offers come from the Premier League, two from elsewhere in Europe and one from the MLS.

Willian has been linked with a move from Stamford Bridge to join either Arsenal or link up with former boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham after his contract expires next month.

But there is also plenty of interest from clubs in Europe and further afield and Joorabchian confirmed the 31-year-old will make a decision on his future after the final with Arsenal.

“I don’t think he’s done a U-turn or any kind of turn. He’s always been very much the same mode,” the agent told talkSPORT when asked about Willian’s future.

“We had two very big offers – one from MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always been in the same mode, saying, ‘I want to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished I will make my decision’.

 

“He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, he has an MLS offer on the table which is very big, and he’s got two other offers in Europe

“So Willian is in a very good position and he is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.”

Willian has enjoyed an excellent season with the Blues, scoring 11 goals and laying on nine assists in 47 appearances.

Inter Miami, Manchester United and Barcelona have all asked to be kept informed about his availability, according to Sky Sports, who add that Willian could also be nearing a new deal with Chelsea.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is keen to extend Willian’s stay in west London but so far has only been prepared to offer a two-year deal instead of the three-year contract the Brazilian is seeking.
