Calm down, Willian’s on his way.
News broke on Tuesday that sparked fears the Diego Costa saga was set to repeat itself. Willian had failed to report for training, citing ‘passport issues’.
We’ve heard that one before, but this time he looks to be telling the truth, rather than angling for a move away from the Bridge.
Amid links to Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona, it’s inevitable that news of his absence would send Chelsea fans into meltdown mode.
There’s nothing to fear, though, Blues. Willian is on his way back. He was pictured at an airport in Sao Paulo. His likely destination – London.
We’re excited to see what Maurizio Sarri has in store for Willian. He improved all of Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon during his time as Napoli boss.
Pedro has already shown signs of improvement under Sarri, though it’s hard to draw definitive conclusions based on a few pre-season games.
Hopefully Willian can match the productivity of the Napoli trio. That’ll no doubt help get Chelsea fans off his back.
