Willian to reject PSG, wants to retire at Chelsea

Willian to reject PSG, wants to retire at Chelsea

Chelsea winger Willian will shun any offers from Paris Saint Germain as he wants to finish his career at Stamford Bridge, according to reports.

ESPN FC is reporting that Chelsea winger Willian will ignore any offers he receives from French champions Paris Saint Germain in favour of remaining with the Blues, as the Brazilian wants to end his career at Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old attacking midfielder signed for Chelsea in 2013 in a 430 million deal from Anzhi Makhachkala.

At the time, he was close to joining Tottenham Hotspur, with a medical planned with the White Hart Lane club. But Chelsea made an eleventh hour attempt to hijack the deal which proved to be successful.

Wilian won the 2014-15 Premier League title with the Blues and, despite the team’s poor form and inability to mount a title defence, the Brazilian performed well again last season.

There are rumours circulating of Chelsea interest in Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, however. The Belgian’s arrival at Stamford Bridge would like put Willian’s starting place in doubt.

But any deal for the former Monaco star is some way off, and, for the time being at least, Willian remains a key player for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Willian has made six Premier League appearances so far this season, scoring two goals.
