How Willian further complicates transfer issues for Lampard


Chelsea is yet to sort out the future of Brazilian international, Willian as the player is yet to agree on a new deal while there is no statement on his move away from the club.

Against the contract policy of the West London club, Willian who is over 30 years of age is requesting a three-year deal while the club is offering him a two-year-deal. The proposal of the club has been rejected by Brazilian international and it is expected that he would be moving in this summer window.

Surprisingly, Willian is reported to be rejecting offers, more lucrative than that of Chelsea. David Beckham’s Inter Miami is reported to have contacted the player and ready to hand him a 3-year deal which he reportedly turned down.

This complicates issues for manager Frank Lampard who does not know how to plan for the summer window. He is not sure if Willian will be staying or leaving the Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, manager Frank Lampard has made it very clear that he wants to work with Willian in the coming season and hopes the player is able to reach an agreement with the club hierarchy before the end of the summer transfer window.
