Chelsea winger Willian opens up on contract impasse

Chelsea winger Willian has spoken up on his Blues future and has made clear the latest in the contract impasse at Stamford Bridge. 

Willian is set to be out of contract at the end of the current season and it appears that there are no plans of signing a new deal. The Brazilian's future at the Bridge seems uncertain with a host of clubs are believed to be weighing up summer moves for him, including the likes of Arsenal and Juventus.

"In fact we like London. I’ve talked about that a lot of times. It’s a city that me and my family love to live in. And I really don’t know why she published that [on social media]," he said. 

"But indeed, it’s because the contract situation here is not easy. Chelsea offered me two, I asked for three, and we stopped there. There’s nothing more to it."

Reports suggest that talks over a contract have stalled, with Willian holding out for a new three-year deal – with Chelsea only prepared to offer him a two-year one to date.
