Chelsea set to agree two-year deal with £120,000-a-week winger

Chelsea are in advanced talks with Brazilian winger Willian over a new deal according to sources in England.

The Sun claims that the Brazilian international is close to accepting a two-year deal, which would extend his stay at the club.

Willian has been a stalwart for the club since signing in 2013 and the Blues are looking to keep him for the foreseeable future.

The London club rarely gives players over the age of 30 two-year deals but this year seems to be the exception due to the current transfer situation at the club.

Chelsea were hit with a two-window transfer ban by FIFA which means that the club would be unable to make signings for the next two windows. This has, in turn, made the club relax its policy with David Luiz and now Willian getting two-year deals.

Willian would be the man who the Blues look up to next season as the departure of Eden Hazard means that there would be an increased focus on the 30-year old to perform on a consistent basis.

The Stamford Bridge outfit are currently without a manager following the departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus with club legend Frank Lampard linked with a sensational move to the club.

Willian had a decent campaign last season as he directly contributed to 19 goals in all competitions.
