Chelsea star Willian was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer, and the Brazilian was linked with Barcelona and Manchester United, but it was the Spanish side who reportedly submitted a bid for the 30-year-old.

Many rumours claimed Willian was interested in a move to Barca, but the Chelsea star has now admitted that those reports are untrue and he doesn’t have any intention of leaving Stamford Bridge.

Willian who has just two years left on his contract even added that he wants to remain at the club for a long time.

“A lot of people they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never,” he said.

“Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here.

“When I arrive here my plan was to stay here as long as possible and now I am here five years I hope stay five more!

“I know I have two years of contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League.

“I am very happy to be here five years. I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments, and a few sad moments as well but that is part of football.

“But these five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
