Willian gives update on Chelsea contract situation

Willian’s Chelsea stint

Willian made the switch to Chelsea in August of 2013.

The Blues are believed to have paid around £32m for the Brazilian’s services.

Since his move to Stamford Bridge, Willian has racked up 313 appearances across all competitions for the Premier League outfit.

In those 313 games, Willian has found the back of the net on 55 occasions, and provided 57 assists.

The winger has also won a plethora of trophies during his stint with Chelsea, including the Premier League and FA Cup.

Willian on Chelsea contract

But Willian’s current Chelsea deal is set to expire in July of 2020.

Should Willian have not put pen to paper on a new deal by January of next year, foreign clubs will be able to sign him to a pre-contract agreement.

Yet despite Willian being 31, and his contract running out, he has still been a regular feature for Chelsea so far this campaign, appearing in 15 of Chelsea’s 16 PL ties.

And it does, according to what Willian has said, sound like both he and the club want to come to some sort of arrangement over a new deal.

As per Simon Johnson of The Athletic, Willian stated that his agent is speaking to Chelsea, and he hopes that they can have some good news soon:

“My agent and the club are talking & I hope we can have some good news soon. It’s normal to have proposals & speculation, especially for players who are at the end of contract. But my focus is 100% on Chelsea & the season.”
