Willian is set to join Arsenal after turning down Chelsea’s offer of a two year deal, with the Brazilian demanding a three year deal.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed there will be no disappointment if Willian leaves Chelsea for Arsenal this summer and is pleased with the way the Blues have handled contract negotiations.
Lampard said: “I read a headline that mentioned disappointment. That doesn’t matter.
Willian remains our player at the moment, he is injured. He’d have given everything to play.
“He’s carried this injury… as a club we’ve done everything we can to explain to Willian.
“Our relationship is really close but no disappointment if he moves on. A fantastic man and fantastic player.
“The club have acted very well in this. If he moves on I’ll wish him well.”
