There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Willian in the last period.
According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Real Madrid are linked with shock Willian move.
The 31-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Brazil international was signed by Chelsea in August 2013 from Anzhi Makhachkala for a fee of 35.5 million euros. The 31-year-old has a contract until 2020 with the club.
The 31-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Brazil. His record for Brazil is also impressive. Willian has scored 9 goals in 69 matches for Brazil at senior level.
Given that his contract is expiring soon and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.
Willian is widely regarded as a transfer target for Real Madrid next summer. He is a long-term target of Real Madrid and could be a decent addition for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The 31-year-old would provide a good variety to Real Madrid’s attack.
According to Football Espana, “Real Madrid are considering a move for Chelsea winger Willian next summer, following the expiration of his contract at Stamford Bridge. The Brazilian international has consistently been reported to want to leave the Premier League, after rejecting two extensions offers from the club in recent months. According to reports in Spanish website Defensa Central, via Sky Sports, arch rivals Barcelona are also interested in the 31-year old, who is looking for a new challenge. The report also states that the former Shakhtar Donetsk winger has instructed his representatives to contact potentially interested clubs this season, with the potential for a pre-contract agreement with a non Premier League club in January. Willian has been an important player for Frank Lampard’s side so far this season, with two goals in nine Premier League starts so far in 2019-20.”
