Wilian hints at extending time at Chelsea

Wilian hints at extending time at Chelsea

Chelsea winger Willian Borges da Silva has no plans of leaving the club, despite continued speculations over his future. 

The Brazilian has spent six successful seasons at the club and has hinted he would love to continue staying despite his contract ending at the end of the current campaign. 

Negotiations over a new contract were said to have stalled, but manager Frank Lampard recently intimated that they were exploring available options to extend his time. 

In an article on The Players' Tribune, the former Shakhtar Donetsk man opened up on his feelings for the club and the city. 

"I have played for Chelsea for more than six years now, and I can honestly say that I am very happy here," the 31-year-old wrote.

"If you ask my wife if she wants to leave London, she’ll say no. My daughters feel the same way.
"Of course, Brazil is Brazil, right? It’s our home, our culture. We always feel good when we go there on holiday and see family and friends. But London is my second home." he added. 

Chelsea's recent acquisition of Hakim Ziyech further put Willian's future at Chelsea in doubt, considering he plays a similar role. 

The club also has a number of young players who can fill Willian's shoes, including Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic.
