One of those clubs is Juventus. Maurizio Sarri is extremely keen on having the 31-year old on to the Italian side, back for a renunion. Willian has no new deal with Chelsea yet, and can leave on a free transfer in the summer.
However, the winger has expressed his desire to stay in England for the next few years. His whole family is settled here and he doesn’t want to leave them. Chelsea can only offer two years of extended contract for Willian, but he wants three years. For a player of his age, the fact that Chelsea are even offering him two years, shows how much he is valued at Stamford Bridge.
Along with Arsenal and Tottenham, Juventus has also joined the transfer race for Willian – according to Italian news publication, Tuttosport via Daily Mail. Maurizio Sarri, the former Blues coach, is now the boss at Juventus and he very much is looking to reunite with Willian at Juventus this time.
