Willian has insisted that he loves Chelsea FC despite not yet having signed a new contract with the Blues.

The Brazilian playmaker’s current deal at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of this season and he is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract with the Blues.

Willian was linked with a move away from Chelsea FC in the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialise for the Brazilian attacker.

The 31-year-old has started four of Chelsea FC’s eight Premier League games so far this season and has scored one goal and made one assist in seven top flight games in total.

Willian will be free to discuss preliminary terms with a foreign club in the January transfer window as things stand.

But in a recent interview quoted by the Daily Express, the Brazilian attacker clearly still has a lot of love for Chelsea FC.

Asked about his recent achievement of playing 300 games for Chelsea FC, Willian said: “I have to be proud of that [reaching 300 games].

“To achieve this number for this club is unbelievable.

“It was my dream to come to play for Chelsea. I always wanted to play for this club.

“I had this affection with this club since they made an offer for me when I was at Shakhtar.

“I started watching the games and supporting this team.

“I loved the name, ‘Chelsea’. The colour blue. And then I had the chance to play at Stamford Bridge for Shakhtar.

“When I stop playing, my name will be there. No-one can cross it off. I feel proud of that.”

Willian will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Newcastle United on Saturday.
