Willian revealed this week of his desire to travel to Brazil to be with his family and he has now been granted his request and according to Matt Law, this may encourage players that have had their request to travel rejected push to travel after Willian was given permission to.

Revealing his desire to travel recently, Willian said: “I’m trying to get permission from the club to be able to go. I explained the situation, I’m trying to get approval. I heard that players from other clubs are going to Brazil as well to be close to the family at this moment.”
