Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted Chelsea star Willian could leave the club, with the Brazilian yet to sign a contract extension with the club.

While Willian wants a three year deal, the Blues are only willing to offer the Brazilian a two year deal.

Willian has reportedly received a three year contract offer from Barcelona and MLS team Inter Miami.

“It is his decision,” said Lampard to reporters on Willian.

“I have not got that answer. I know the situation from the club’s end. I have a great relationship with Willian. I actually do not know what that decision is.

“And if that happens over the next whatever days as he said then that will be good for me either way. Of course I am very happy with Willian, as he has been brilliant for me this season with his input and work ethic within the squad.

“But it is his choice and I respect his choice. He has been a great servant for Chelsea if he decides to move on. And if he does decide to move on then Chelsea moves on as well and we have to look forward ourselves.”
