Trusted reports say Chelsea Winger, Willian could agree on a new deal with Chelsea by the end of this week.  This has been reported after Chelsea made a breakthrough in contract talks with their star man. The Brazilian could become a free transfer this summer, after already rejecting a two- year deal extension offer. The 31-year-old has however played a key role in Chelsea champions league qualification. Chelsea is not ready to lose him.

Willian instead has been asking for a three-year commitment from Chelsea and this meant that talks over a renewal of the contract reached a stalemate before the lockdown. Willian has scored 11 goals this season provided 9 assists across all competition and has always stated his desire to remain at Chelsea.

Willian missed the 2-0 victory when Chelsea faced Wolves on Sunday. The victory meant that Chelsea had secured their Champions League spot with a top 4 finish. However, the Chelsea ace could feature ahead of Chelsea FA cup vs. Arsenal the next weekend after his injury.
