According to ESPN via Daily Express, Chelsea star Willian is upset and offended that Chelsea did not push harder to keep hold of him.

The winger will leave when his contract expires at the end of the season and he has reportedly agreed a deal to join Premier League rivals Arsenal.

Willian wanted a three year deal to remain at Chelsea but the board tabled a two-year ‘take it or leave it’ contract and would not negotiate a longer deal.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wanted to keep hold of Willian and is gutted the forward is set to leave Stamford Bridge.

“It is his decision, I haven’t got that answer,” Lampard said. “I know the situation at the club’s end. I have a great relationship with Willian, but I don’t actually know what the decision is.

“If that happens over the next whatever days, as he said, then that would be good for me in either way. Of course, I am very happy with Willian.

“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 will move on and we have to look forwards ourselves.”

    Every man’s decision should make him happy, especially in his interest. Blues respect Willian for his decision. Life has to move on.

  2. Thank you and goodbye. Wish we sold him when Barcelona offered us big bucks a few years ago.Comments attributed to him about not being happy when the club offered him a two year deal does not show him in a good light. CFC broke club policy. They did more for him than they did for Terry and Lampard. He is not as big a legend as they were. They accepted it and moved on. He should’ve done the same.
