Chelsea star Willian rejects the club’s new two-year contract. While their rival club Arsenal agrees to the player’s terms and offers a three-year contract.
Brazilian Football player, Willian steps close to his exit from Chelsea after he rejects their offer of a two-year deal. His contract with the club will be expiring this summer which has made way for a new agreement. Chelsea is only prepared to offer him a contract until 2022, however, the player wants a three-year deal.
Although he will delay his decision for the future until the second leg of the last-16 Champions League tie against Bayern Munich on Saturday, he is likely to leave Chelsea. This has made way for Arsenal’s chance to sign the footballer. The club has agreed to offer a three-year contract to the player according to reports. The player’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, revealed that the star had offers from four other clubs on the table. Frank Lampard had previously shared his willingness to keep the player with Chelsea as he has played a key part in his attack during his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
