Willian is keen to stay at Chelsea FC despite interest from FC Barcelona, according to a report in the English media.

Website Goal is reporting that the Brazil international is in talks with the west London side over a new deal at Stamford Bridge after his promising start to the season.

The same article states that the 31-year-old is eager to stay at Chelsea FC despite the lure of moving to Spanish champions FC Barcelona.

According to the same story, Willian is currently in talks with the Stamford Bridge outfit over a new deal with little over six months left on his current contract.

Goal go on to report that Chelsea FC’s offer to Willian will be crucial as FC Barcelona continue to monitor the South American’s situation in the English capital.

Willian will be a free agent at the end of the Premier League season unless Chelsea FC can reach an agreement with one of their longest-serving players in Frank Lampard’s squad.

Goal go on to highlight that Chelsea FC have traditionally been reluctant to offer players over the age of 30 a deal lasting longer than 12 months at Stamford Bridge.

Willian has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League during his spell at Chelsea FC.
