Willian has insisted that he is happy to stay and fight for his place in the Chelsea FC first team under Maurizio Sarri.

The Brazilian attacker’s future has been a constant source of speculation this summer after he struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte last term.

Willian has since reported back to Chelsea FC to begin pre-season training and he was a second-half substitute during the Blues’ 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday.

The 29-year-old will be hoping to prove himself as worthy of a regular starting spot in the first team under new manager Sarri this season.

And the Brazil international has insisted that he is happy to stay at the west London side and battle for a starting spot next season.

Speaking to Chelsea TV after Sunday’s defeat by Manchester City, Willian said: “I’m happy here. I’m happy to be at Chelsea. I’m looking forward to playing well and winning titles.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are still believed to be on the lookout for some further signings this summer as they look to try and bolster their squad before Thursday’s deadline.

The west London side have so far only been able to bring in Jorginho and Fred this summer.
