Chelsea Football Club and the Brazil Football Confederation are expected to come into agreement on the involvement of Willian Da Silva in the Olympic Games and the Copa America. Willian is keen on representing his country in these tournaments, but Chelsea thinks he should rest and spare his energy for the attack-minded Antoine Conte’s team of the 2016-2017 season.
Willian has continued to shine for his struggling side team and he is one of the best players Chelsea has had this season. Guus Hiddink has always been quick to praise the playmaker, saying that his legs are like hands on February 21 ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Manchester city. The two have enjoyed a very warm relationship and perhaps that is why the player is better in every other game.
He has also excelled at the international stage, scoring six goals for Brazil in 30 appearances. It is this international form that he wants to continue improving, and he is hopeful that Chelsea can accept to release him to allow him to join his teammates for these two international tournaments.
Antoine Conte is likely to be involved in the decision to let the player go on international duty, since if the player is involved in both the competitions, he may miss the first two games for Chelsea in the 2016-2017 season.
