Tottenham are believed to be keen on signing Willian on a free transfer, as Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the winger.
The Daily Mail claim that Spurs are willing to offer the 31-year-old a contract, as they look to sign him on a free transfer.
And Willian has now admitted that Chelsea simply won’t offer him the deal that he wants.
“It’s a difficult situation because Chelsea offered me two years and they are not going to change what they offered. I said I wanted three more years,” the attacker, who is currently on a £120,000-a-week deal (Spotrac), revealed.
“The situation is difficult because of this. I really don’t know if it will be possible [to stay]. My goal is to continue working and focus on the remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning games.
“I have a clear head and I’m focused for the rest of the season that we have left. I think it’s difficult [to stay]. Let’s see what happens.”
Tottenham will surely be keeping close tabs on the situation now, as Willian could present a potential bargain.
The Brazilian’s contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire at the end of the campaign, meaning Spurs could be able to bring him in on a free transfer.
Mourinho is a massive fan of Willian’s talents, and the Chelsea winger has also previously claimed that the Portuguese boss is the best manager he has ever worked with over the course of his career.
