Former Chelsea winger Willian is set to join Arsenal this weekend after leaving Chelsea as a free agent.
According to Daily Mail, the 32 year old Brazilian will earn an astonishing £220,000 a week at Arsenal after he completes his free transfer from Chelsea, with the contract expected to be signed off by Sunday.
Willian is expected to earn around £35 million if he completes his three year deal at Arsenal.
Willian’s basic weekly salary will be lower than at Chelsea, but once a huge signing-on fee is factored in — along with loyalty payments and other bonuses throughout the three-year contract’s duration — the Brazilian will take home a massive £220,000 weekly.
“He would have got nowhere near that money at Chelsea,” a source explained to Daily Mail.
“The signing-on fee reflects that it is a free transfer and if he sees out the duration it’s a great deal for him.”
