Chelsea winger Willian has been strongly linked with a transfer back to his home country, Brazil, in recent weeks but that rumour has been put to an end by the Brazilian himself.
Top Journalist Sandro Barboza had claimed that Willian was prepared to return to the Brazilian league but it looks like the news was not true.
The Brazilian’s official Twitter handle retweeted a tweet denying the rumour before it was immediately undone.
Following on from that social media stunt, Willian went a step further to confirm that he is staying back at Chelsea by tweeting the renowned journalist directly himself.
Willian’s tweet translates to: “Hi Sandro [Barboza], how are you doing? Sorry, but I’m not in talks with Brazilian side Palmeiras and my agent has not received any offer from the Brazilian club. I [Willian] have no plans to return home at this time. Hugs!”
The Brazilian winger has found it hard to break into the starting lineup in recent weeks as it looks like Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has found his choice starting XI, but the Brazilian did feature in a match from the bench in the victory away to West Bromwich on Saturday afternoon.
He is keen on playing regular football to ensure a starting place in the Brazil National team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
