Chelsea enter talks over contract deal for Brazilian star

Chelsea want new Willian deal

Chelsea have reportedly opened contract negotiations with Willian amid the speculation that Barcelona could sign him on a free transfer at the end of the season.



Willian's current deal with the Blues is due to conclude in June 2020 and he is free to discuss a pre-contract with an overseas club when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Blaugrana have been touted as the leading contenders to land Willian on a Bosman move but Goal.com suggests that the Blues are determined to keep hold of the Brazil international.

Blues head coach Frank Lampard has brought a fresh look to the club with the promotion of several young graduates but the 41-year-old is still said to highly value the services of Willian.

The former Shakhtar man made a slow beginning to the season after recovering from a hamstring problem. Since September, he has been nearly ever-present for the west London giants while contributing three goals and three assists.
