Willian is eager to quit Chelsea FC despite Maurizio Sarri’s pleas for the Brazilian forward to remain at Stamford Bridge, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Brazil international has his heart set on a move this summer despite Sarri’s eagerness to keep the experienced winger.

The same article states that Sarri has immediately improved the atmosphere around the west London side but Willian’s decision to quit hasn’t faltered despite the exciting appointment.

According to the same story, the Blues manager has urged unsettled stars Willian, Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and Thibaut Courtois to prove their value to the west London side.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the second time in three season.

The Brazilian forward, 29, is in his prime and understandably the former Shakhtar Donetsk star is reluctant to miss out on a campaign in Europe’s premier club competition.

Willian fell out with Sarri’s predecessor Antonio Conte in the final months of the 2017-18 Premier League season and the Brazilian hit out at the Italian head coach on Instagram.

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
