Willian’s Chelsea contract is set to expire in the summer but the Brazilian is yet to reach an agreement over a new deal.
Willian wants a three year deal to remain at Chelsea while the Blues are only willing to offer the Brazilian a two year contract.
Willian is not giving up on thrashing out an agreement to keep him at the club but the Brazilian has admitted he has been told by the club that it would be impossible to offer him a three year contract.
Willian told Expediente Futebol: “Really a very beautiful story that I built at this club, I have a very special affection for the fans, for the people who work there and I identified myself a lot here.
“Everyone knows that my contract ends now in a few months, so the renewal is really a difficult thing to happen.
“I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years, I asked for three and it ended there, we didn’t talk anymore, we didn’t negotiate anymore.
“Three years – Chelsea said it would be impossible, so for now theres this difficulty, but nothing is impossible.
“We don’t know what can happen, suddenly we could make a deal and get it right. But what I can say today is that my contract is going over and I will be free to negotiate with any team.”
