MN: Milan and Roma monitoring Brazilian winger as Chelsea contract talks stall

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Roma could both be interested in the prospect of signing winger Willian on a free transfer this summer, a report claims.

Willian has five goals and four assists in 33 appearances across the Premier League and Champions League this season so far, but at present he appears destined to leave Chelsea as his contract expires in June.

The Brazilian spoke during an interview with Esporte Interativo outlining his plans for the future and revealing that he and the Blues do not agree on the terms of a renewal.

“Chelsea offered me a two-year contract but I would like to sign one for three seasons,” he said.

“The club does not seem willing to change its proposal and finding an agreement could be difficult. My goal now is to try to do the best in these months and to help the team.”

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Willian does not fit in to Frank Lampard’s vision as he is doing everything to launch young players.

The report adds that the 31-year-old would present a sensible purchase for a team who players with a three-pronged attack or a 4-2-3-1 like Milan. Inter are therefore to be excluded, while Juventus are unlikely to make a move – but Roma and Milan could be very interested.
