Chelsea Star, Willian Talks on ‘Possible’ January Transfer Amid Links from Barcelona
Willian has reassured Chelsea fans he will not be leaving Stamford Bridge next month after his man-of-the-match performance against Huddersfield, Dailymail Sports reports.
The Brazilian scored one goal and had a hand in the other two as Antonio Conte’ s side bounced back from last weekend’s shock defeat at West Ham to win 3-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night.
Willian has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League to fund Chelsea’ s bid for PSG star, Lucas Moura in the January transfer window, although he is understood to be reluctant to go there.
Barcelona are also rumoured to be looking at the 29-year-old as an alternative to Philippe Coutinho while Jose Mourinho – the man who signed him from Anzhi Makhachkala for £32million in 2013 – has aconsidered taking him to Manchester United.
With doubts over the future of Willian and Real Madrid target, Eden Hazard, Chelsea have been asking about Leon Bailey at Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
But asked if he will leaving Stamford Bridge next month, Willian said: ‘I hope not! I’m happy here and the fans can be calm.
‘I’m always happy here at Chelsea. I really like this club a lot with my heart. Yeah, I’m very happy.’
Conte admitted after the West Ham defeat that Chelsea’s hopes of retaining the Premier League title were over as Manchester City continue to pull clear at the top of the table.
But after inspiring a comfortable win in wet and windy West Yorkshire on Tuesday night, Willian is refusing to give up the chase.
‘It’s a big gap but we have to fight until the end,’ he added. ‘We have a lot of games and anything can happen. We have to fight. We will never give up. We have to continue.
‘We have to think about us and our performance and forget the others. We are Chelsea, a big club, and we always want to win.
‘We have to be there and stay at the top of the table. We have to do our job always. We have to try and play the way we did against Huddersfield.
‘We played very well, we created a lot of chances, the team was compact and very solid. I think we have to carry on like this.’
