Real Madrid have reportedly turned down the chance to sign Willian on a free transfer this summer.

According to The Mirror, Real Madrid are not keen on pursuing the Brazilian because they have concerns over giving the Chelsea winger a three-year contract.

Willian is out of contract at the club on June 30 but with the Premier League restarting later this month, the Brazilian will sign a short-term deal with the Blues so he can play the rest of the season.

The Brazilian looks likely to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season with the Blues only willing to offer a two-year extension as opposed to the three years requested by Willian.

“It’s a difficult situation because Chelsea offered me two years and they are not going to change what they offered. I said I wanted three more years,” the winger told Brazilian outlet Esporte Interativo.

“The situation is difficult because of this. I really don’t know if it will be possible [to stay]. My goal is to continue working and focus on the remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning games.

“I have a clear head and I’m focused for the rest of the season that we have left. I think it’s difficult [to stay]. Let’s see what happens.”

Willian has scored seven goals and supplied six assists in 37 games this season.
