Willian has been one of Chelsea’s best players since the resumption of the season and has played a key role in every game, scoring four goals already, including a stunning free-kick against West Ham.
The future of the Brazilian has been up in the air, as he’d be a free agent at the end of the season.
Willian had wanted a three year deal to remain at the club but the Blues only offered him a two year contract, which he refused to sign.
According to reports, Chelsea have opened talks again with the Brazilian about his future, and the club aren’t keen on losing him to a rival club, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham sniffing around him.
Speaking about his future in a recent interview, Willian said that he would prefer a move to MLS over a return to Brazil once his days in Europe are through.
“I have plans to stay in Europe and try to play here maybe for three or four more seasons,” Willian told ESPN Brasil’s Futebol no Mundo.
“I believe I can still perform on a high level. After that, when I will be 35, 36 years old, I intend to go to the United States and play there. It is a goal that I have.”
Willian is keen to stay in Europe for at least three more years before leaving for the MLS, hence his desire to sign only a three-year deal with the club.
He added: “I don’t rule out returning to Brazil, it is my country and my culture. But returning to Brazil would not be my first choice if I leave Europe. I have the wish to play in the United States also because of my family, being able to live in the United States would be good.
“My family would feel great and so would I. For now, Brazil is not crossing my mind. Of course, that could change and I can realize one day that I want to go back to Brazil. Maybe go back to Corinthians and retire with the club. But my goal right now is to stay in Europe, play for maybe three or four more seasons and then go to the United States and we will go from there.”
