Willian updates Chelsea FC fans about his future
Willian says he is hopeful of extending his stay at Chelsea FC beyond next summer
Willian has revealed that he is hopeful of extending his stay at Chelsea FC beyond next summer.
The Brazilian attacker’s current contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of this season and talks are yet to commence about a new deal.
Willian has spent six years at the west London club, winning the Premier League twice, as well as the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League during that time.
The 31-year-old’s contractual situation has inevitably led to speculation linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
However, Willian himself has now revealed that he is hopeful that he will be able to extend his stay at the club.
Speaking in an interview quoted by the Evening Standard, Willian said: “From my side, I want to stay.
“I have one year left and I want to stay because I like to play for Chelsea. I love this club, I love to live in London and my family loves it here. I have been here six years already so everything is perfect for me.
“Of course [there is more I want to do at Chelsea], win the Champions League! I want to win more titles here, I want to play more games, to score more goals so everything that I can do, I will try hard to do.”
Willian will be hoping to start when Chelsea FC return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge.
The attacker has only started one of Chelsea FC’s five Premier League games under Frank Lampard so far this season.
Chelsea FC currently find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table as they look to finish in the top four this season.
