Willian has confirmed his Chelsea departure after seven years at the club, where he made nearly 350 appearances, winning two Premier League titles, the League Cup an FA Cup and Europa League to his tally with the Blues.

Willian is set to join Chelsea’s rivals Arsenal, after being unable to agree terms with Chelsea. The Blues were only keen to give him a two-year deal, but the Brazilian wanted three.

Chelsea legend John Terry has sent a message to the Brazilian, recognising his impact at the club, and calling him an absolute legend.

Writing on his Instagram story, Terry said: “Good luck Willian.

“Absolute LEGEND. Great player and man. Gonna miss you geez.”

Meanwhile, in an emotional letter to fans, Willian posted: “They were seven wonderful years. In August 2013 when I received the offer from Chelsea, I was convinced this is where I had to play. Today I am certain that it was the best of decisions. There were so many happy times, some sad, there were trophies and it was always very intense.

“Yet, beyond the trophies, I learnt a lot about myself. I developed a great deal, becoming a better player and a better person. With each training session, with each game, with every minute spent in the dressing room I was always learning.

“I am really grateful for the Chelsea fans for the affectionate way they welcomed me at Stamford Bridge and their support throughout my time at the club.

“There was also criticism, which is normal, what is important though is that both the affection and criticism drove me to always give my all in every training session, every game, to be constantly improving until my very last minute in a Chelsea shirt.

“The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my team-mates. I will miss all the staff at the club who’ve always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans. I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and always did my best in a Chelsea shirt.

“My heartfelt thanks go out to all of you and god bless you!”
