Willian has finally made a decision on his Chelsea future after months of negotiations with the Blues over a new contract.
The Brazilian had been holding out for a three year deal while the Blues were only willing to offer him a two year contract.
According to The Mirror, Willian has made the decision to leave Stamford Bridge after failing to reach an agreement with the Blues over a new contract.
The Brazilian has reportedly told his friends that he will join London rivals Arsenal, even though the most lucrative deal on the table has come from David Beckham’s MLS franchise Inter Miami.
Willian made the decision to join Arsenal despite receiving a better offer from Inter Miami because he would wants to remain in London where his family are settled.
Speaking about his contract situation with Chelsea last month, Willian told Brazilian YouTube channel De Sola: “Chelsea only offered me two years and I asked for three. My goal in the next contract is to sign for three years, so I haven’t had a deal with Chelsea yet.
“This is what I asked the club for, three years of contract. If you give me that, I’ll get the pen and sign the contract tomorrow.”
