Chelsea star Willian thinks it will be “very difficult” to sign a new contract as he heads for an exit from Stamford Bridge.
Willian has no contract at the end of June and his future is not clear in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, the Premier League season is suspended.
The 31-year-old, who came from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013, wants a three-year contract, but Chelsea did not want to meet his requests.
Linked with Barcelona Liga champions previously, Willian told Fox Sports Brasil’s Expendiente Futebol: “Everyone knows that my contract is underway in a few months and it looks like it will be very difficult to get an extension .
“I think it is unlikely that I will renew because Chelsea offered me a two year contract, I asked for three and it ended there.
“There have been no more talks or negotiations. Chelsea said three years would be impossible, so at the moment it seems unlikely that I will extend, but nothing is impossible.
“We don’t know what could happen. We could suddenly reach an agreement, but what I can say today is that my contract is in progress and I will be free to negotiate with any club. ”
“I built something fantastic in Chelsea,” he added. “I especially like the fans and the people who work there, and I feel very comfortable.”
