Willian does religious act before talks with Chelsea

West London outfit Chelsea are expected to sit with Brazilian international Willian for a new deal but that will be happening after the star winger has been baptized.

Willian was pictured spending his time outside football in Israel and was baptized in the River Jordan as a religious obligation to prove commitment to one’s faith.

The Brazilian international has got his contract running with the Blues team but it is set to expire in 2020 which makes the talks for a new deal very necessary.

Chelsea have made it clear that most of their players will not be leaving the club in this summer transfer window despite being linked because of the fact that they will not be able to land replacements for them.

Chelsea are currently under a transfer ban for the next two transfer windows and there are no signs that the judgment would be upturned before the close of the window despite claims of appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

The Brazilian international has also made it clear that he wishes to remain with the West London outfits for the coming season especially after playing a role in winning the Europa League finals title against Arsenal.
