​Chelsea winger Willian has admitted he does not know what the future holds for him after contract talks stalled over the length of a new deal.

The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and the Blues have been trying to tie him down with a new contract. They normally only offer one-year deals to players over 30, but they offered Willian a two-year contract to try and convince him to stay.


However, speaking to ESPN Brazil (via the ​Evening Standard), ​Willian admitted he has pushed for three years and the club's refusal to meet his demands has seen the negotiations come to a halt.

“I still don’t know," Willian said. "There’s nothing with any [other] team. There’s no offer from any team. My negotiation for now is with ​Chelsea. There’s still nothing concrete from any team. 

"And the situation with Chelsea is still that way. Chelsea offered me two, I demanded three, and it stopped there. There’s nothing much.”

Amid all the speculation, Willian's wife recently added fuel to the fire by admitting that his '​days were numbered' at Chelsea (which sounds a bit menacing). She wore a red outfit to Stamford Bridge to watch Sunday's win over ​Everton, which was obviously and intelligently interpreted as a sign that Willian had agreed to join ​Arsenal, and not just because she likes the colour red.

However, Willian insisted that no such deal is in place, adding: “Look, I always like to make it very clear the respect I have for this club, the affection I have for Chelsea too. 

"Regardless of my situation, whether I’ll stay or not, one thing I can say: I’ll always try to do my best, give my best on the pitch for this team. There’s really no offer from any club.

"So I wanted to make this very clear, that I’m still a Chelsea player, and I’ll always try to do my best until the end of my contract. Whether I stay or not, we’ll see that in the future."


“We really like London, I’ve said this many times. It’s a city that my family and I love to live in, we love the city. We love the city and I really don’t know why she posted it. It really is because the situation of the contract here isn’t easy. 

"But I hope that in the next few weeks or months this can be sorted. And then you’ll know if I’ll stay or not. But what I can say is that I’ll always try to do my best for the team."
