According to a report in the Daily Mail, Chelsea have moved to dismiss rumours that talented and pacy playmaker Willian has been offered to French champions PSG and German champions Bayern Munich. The club insists that the Brazilian is a key figure and still remains part of Jose Mourinho’s plans.
Rumours have been making the rounds that the arrival of Pedro from Barcelona would spell doom for his first team chances but the club refuted the claims that the former Shaktar Donetsk and Anzi Makhachkala man would be sacrificed for the Spanish winger.
Willian enjoyed a regular first team role for the Blues last season as they took the Premier League by storm on their way to lifting the title. He alongside current PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year winner, Eden Hazard were first choice wide players alongside Nemanja Matic, John Terry and Ivanovic who enjoyed almost untouchable status.
Willians impressive and consistent displays forced out German international Andre Schurrle from the club as he sought regular first team minutes. The German failed to dislodge the Brazillian from the starting lineup.
The arrival of Pedro from Barcelona has sparked serious speculation regarding the future of some of the attacking players at the club. However, the most likely player to depart the club appears to be Juan Cuadrado who arrived at the club during the winter transfer window. The Colombian has since failed to impress since sealing the switch to the Blues and making only 12 appearances in the league recording no goals or assists.
