Willian time at the Stamford Bridge is due to end this summer when his deal expires in the coming weeks.
Willian has been approached by two Premier League clubs who have put ‘concrete offers’ on the table.
The Brazil international’s time at Stamford Bridge is due to end this summer when his deal expires in the coming weeks.
It is understood that issues in negotiations had been due to the player’s demand for a three-year deal, while Chelsea was only willing to offer a two-year extension given that he is reaching the latter years of his career.
Reports over the weekend claimed that Willian has made progress with the club in terms of contract talks and could sign a new deal.
While Arsenal and Tottenham have both been linked with the 31-year-old recently, and Kia Joorabchian, Willian’s agent, has now claimed his client has two offers on the table from Premier League clubs.
Kia Joorabchian told talkSPORT: “I don’t think he’s done a U-turn or any kind of turn. He’s always been very much the same mode.
“We had two very big offers – one from MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always been in the same mode, saying, ‘I want to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished I will make my decision’.
“He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, he has an MLS offer on the table which is very big, and he’s got two other offers in Europe.
“So Willian is in a very good position and he is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.”
