Brazil international Willian is expected to commit his future to Chelsea by putting pen-to-paper on a fresh two-year deal with the west London side.
Willian currently has 12 months remaining on his existing deal with the club and The Star claims that he could be rewarded with a 12-month extension on the deal.
The attacker’s future has been regularly put into doubt over the past 18 months, but he has regularly cited that he is committed to the cause at the Capital outfit.
Earlier this year, it was claimed that Willian may want at least a three-year deal to prolong his stay with the club, but considering the side’s difficult situation, he has given the greenlight to pen a two-year contract.
Willian has been with the Blues for the past six seasons and during this period, he has helped the club secure two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one Europa League crown and the League Cup.
His gametime has somewhat been restricted in the past couple of seasons, but the Blues are nonetheless said to value his services, with a ban sanctioned on them for two transfer windows.
The Blues have already failed with an appeal to FIFA and they have yet to lodge a similar petition to the Court of Arbitration for Sport as they await a written judgement from football’s governing body.
