Chelsea star is ready to commit his future to the club as he wants a five-year contract at the Stamford Bridge, according to report.
Willian has made it clear that he wants to remain with Chelsea for the next five years, the Brazilian attacker was a subject of interest from Manchester United and Barcelona during the summer transfer window.
The La Liga Champions made three different offers and each offer was turned down by Chelsea in a bid to keep the Brazilian forward.
Willian wanted an exit from the club under Antonio Conte but with the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, the 30-year-old attacker is set to remain with the Blues for the next five years.
“A lot of people, they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never,” he told the club’s website.
“Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here.
“My mind was always like that, always when I arrive here my plan was to stay here as long as possible and now I am here five years, I hope to stay five more.
“I know I have two years of my contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League.
“I am very happy to be here five years. I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments, and a few sad moments as well but that is part of football. These five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player.”
Willian has been a vital player under Sarri so far, he is expected to be in the squad when they host Cardiff on Saturday in the Premier League.
