Willian commits future to Chelsea unless they want him out
- Willian wants to stay at Chelsea amid Man United links
- He seems to accept any decision the club could make
''My will is to stay with the club - unless they want to sell me,'' Willian told a Portuguese reporter after Chelsea lost to Man City in the Community Shield. He then added: ''My head is here with Chelsea, but you never know what will happen tomorrow. I hope to remain at the club.''
The Brazilian featured in the 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Man City but only from the bench in the second half following his incomplete pre-season that was only aggravated by his passport issues that even Maurizio Sarri found 'strange'. The head coach later added that there is no problem with the Brazilian who, he is confident, will stay at the club.

Willian, 30 in a few days, has been linked with a move to Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Man United all summer. The latest report from Mirror claims that Jose Mourinho would love to swap Anthony Martial for Willian since both players are valued at a pretty much the same level. The player's contract expires in summer 2020.
No need to remind you that Man United fans are divided by the issue. It's either this:
I’ve been a huge fan of Willian for some time now, he’d be ideal in our system. Pace, power, technique and knows how to whip a ball into the box + he’s a fantastic relationship with José.— UTFR (@manunitedmedia) August 5, 2018
If United offer Martial in a swap for Willian then Jose should be sacked instantly. Pathetic deal that's never gonna happen #MUFC— The United Stand (@UnitedStandMUFC) August 5, 2018
And where do you stand in the debate?
