Willian speaks on his Chelsea situation

Willian keen on London stay

Chelsea attacker Willian has seemingly ruled out a move to rivals Manchester United after stressing that London is an 'incredible city' to live in.

The Brazil international has been recently linked with a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford following his limited gametime under Antonio Conte over the course of the campaign.

Despite this, the 28-year-old seems content with life at the Premier League champions, and he is focused on staying put in the capital for years to come.

"Of course money matters, no one can survive without the money. But money is not everything. If I can get this British citizenship," he told Brazilian outlet Globo.

"London is a city I fit in very well. Before I even lived here I already liked it. Always in my free time, when I did not play here I would come here. Now I’m going to be four years living here."

The former Anzhi man has made himself a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge in recent years, and he appears to be confident of earning more playing time with the Blues set to participate in the Champions League next term.

Willian amassed eight goals and two assists for Chelsea during the recently concluded league campaign - although he played second fiddle to Pedro for most of the season.

He could be in line for a surprise start in the FA Cup final versus Arsenal this weekend after having netted a brace in the 4-2 semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur.
