Chelsea winger Willian has ruled out rumours over a move to Spanish side Barcelona in January, The Mail reports.
The team we’ve drawn in the last 16 of the Champions League have turned to Willian after failure to sign Liverpool player Phillipe Coutinho.
The Brazilian who is in goalscoring touch after finding the back of the net against Huddersfield, has told Chelsea fans to be calm as The Mail reports.
The Mail quotes Willian saying:
“I’m happy here and the fans can be calm. I’m always happy here at Chelsea. I really like this club a lot with my heart.”
Chelsea won’t let Willian go easily
The 29-year-old has struggled to be a name on Antonio Conte’s starting eleven. However, it’s unlikely the Italian will be prepared to let him depart.
Letting Willian go may be a risk despite his rotational role in the squad, no matter how high the offer is.
However, the player’s passion for Chelsea can’t be faulted and selling him at the end of the season would be a safer option.
