PHOTO: £30m star confirms he is travelling back to Chelsea after Brazil adventure

Willian is due back at Chelsea imminently after his post-World Cup break.

World Cup semi-finalist Willian has confirmed he is due back at Chelsea imminently.

The £30 million attacker posted a photo on his Instagram page of himself on the plane, communicating that he was on his way back to London.

Willian was used mainly as a substitute for Brazil at the World Cup, despite appearing in five games, his total time on the pitch accumulated to less than two complete matches. 

He was unable to influence the games positively but it was not for a lack of trying.

Willian's impending comeback indicates his Chelsea and Brazil teammates Ramires and Oscar will not be too far behind.

With Andre Schurrle also confirming he is coming back this week, Chelsea's squad is almost back to full strength, which will allow Jose Mourinho to continue to fine-tune his Premier League preparations in time for the season kick off on August 16.
