PSG, Real Madrid enter race to sign Chelsea star

Willian set for EPL departure?

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have reportedly joined the race to sign Chelsea winger Willian on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The Brazilian's current deal with the Blues expires next month but he has already committed to the club for the rest of the campaign.

He is thereafter expected to leave on a free transfer and Le 10 Sport claims that Les Parisiens and Real Madrid could go head-to-head to secure his services.

It was previously indicated that Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could be leading the race for his signature but the north London duo may not offer him a lucrative package with the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hence, a move away from the Premier League appears likely for Willian and it is claimed that Les Parisiens are best placed to sign him ahead of Los Blancos, who are more focused on strengthening the midfield and defensive departments.

Willian has bagged seven goals and six assists for the Blues this term. He has been holding out for a three-year contract but the west London side are only prepared to offer him a two-year extension.
