Chelsea forward Willian is set to be a free agent this summer when his contract expires on the 30th of June. But as things stand the current season will roll, well beyond that date.
The Premier League has now been suspended for a second time with the new date being the 30th of April meaning the clubs might have to cut short their summer break in order to finish the remainder of the games.
And in such a scenario, Willian has pledged his support to Chelsea saying that he is willing to play for the Blues for the extended period even if that takes place after his contract expires.
“My contract really ends I think in July,” said Willian(as reported).
“If I had to play on those dates, in these months, I think it would be no problem for me to end the league in a way which would be loyal to the club, as they always were with me, regardless of a signed paper.
“It’s clear that this is not a certainty, we don’t know what can happen.
“But without a doubt, as always, I will always be ready to give the best to my club regardless of my contract situation.”
Will Willian sign a new deal at Chelsea?
While Chelsea are willing to offer a new two-year deal at the club but as per the rumours, the Brazilian will once sign a fresh contract if he is offered a three-year deal.
And this is the biggest reason why many pundits feel that Willian will move out of the club at the end of the current season and join a new club.
The likes of Bayern Munich has been heavily linked with the player but it seems like his family want to remain in London meaning teams like Spurs and Arsenal are currently the frontrunners to signing the winger.
But having said that, if Willian is willing to play for Chelsea beyond his contract in order to show his loyalty to the club we doubt if he will want to join a direct Premier League rival like Spurs or Arsenal for the upcoming season.
