Chelsea forward Willian wants to extend his six-year stay at the Blues with a new contract and is targeting major trophies, including the UCL.
The Brazilian star, who joined the Blues from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2013, is in the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge but has no desire to depart London any time soon.
The 31-year-old has racked up two PL winners’ medals as well as an FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Europa League during his time at Chelsea and made his first start of the season in the 5-2 win against Wolves on Saturday.
The attacker says he has not yet discussed a fresh deal with officials at Chelsea but is more than prepared to pen an extension.
“From my side, I want to stay,” the South American told Standard Sport. “I have one year left and I want to stay because I like to play for Chelsea. I love this club, I love to live in London and my family loves it here. I have been here six years already so everything is perfect for me.”
He is one of the few players left in the Chelsea roster to have played alongside head coach Frank Lampard, who the player has tipped to become one of the world’s best managers.
Frank is the fifth manager Willian has worked at under Chelsea, and while the club have managed to find unprecedented success in spite of their revolving door approach to chiefs, the winger is hoping the appointment of Englishman marks a change of culture in west London.
“I enjoy a lot to work with him,” he said, speaking as Willian launched an online ‘how to be a footballer’ course to help aspiring football players get crucial support in the early stages of their professional careers.
