Chelsea Attacking Midfielder, Willian Ready to Sign Contract Extension. Brazilian international Willian is ready to sign a contract extension with his club Chelsea.
The Blues would still love to keep Willian long-term, but their two-year offer to the player doesn’t match his own three-year ambitions.
In the meantime, and with his current deal due to expire on June 30, the Brazilian is willing to put pen to paper so that he remains at Stamford Bridge until the last ball of the 2019/20 season has been kicked, according to talkSPORT.
It seems unlikely that Frank Lampard will be able to convince the player his future remains in west London during the intervening period too.
“It’s a difficult situation because Chelsea offered me two years and they are not going to change what they offered,” he said to Esporte Interativo cited by talkSPORT.
“I said I wanted three more years. The situation is difficult because of this. I really don’t know if it will be possible [to stay].
“My goal is to continue working and focus on the remainder of the season so that Chelsea can continue winning games. I have a clear head and I’m focused for the rest of the season that we have left. I think it’s difficult. Let’s see what happens.”
