The attacking midfielder defined his destiny. After seven seasons at Chelsea, the Brazilian will move on to defend Arsenal. He accepted the offer for a three-year contract, earning about £ 100,000 a week. The transfer must be made official after the end of Chelsea’s season. The news was first reported by ESPN and then by the “Daily Mail” newspaper. It is worth remembering that sources close to the player say that the negotiation is well underway, but that it was not closed.
Last week, the player’s manager, Kia Joorabchian, commented that five proposals had been submitted. Two days later, “Sky Sports” reported that Barcelona had offered a three-year contract to the attacking midfielder.
Willian arrived at Chelsea in August 2013, coming from Anzhi Makhachkala. For the London team, he participated in 339 matches, scored 63 goals and won two Premier League, an FA Cup, an English League Cup, and a Europa League.
