Willian admits his future at Chelsea remains to be a question following a disagreement over terms over a fresh deal.

Chelsea winger Willian has suggested that he would like to commit his future to the club by signing a new three-year contract extension. But since they have offered him only a two-year deal, the Brazilian is hesitant in doing so.

Since making a switch to the Stamford Bridge back in 2013, Willian has been a prominent figure in the Chelsea team. He has played over 300 games with the Premier League titles and a Europa League trophy being his most notable achievements in the process.

The 31-year old’s current contract is set to expire in the summer. With no ongoing talks of extension, he is most likely to become a free agent. And Willian says disagreement with Chelsea over personal terms is the reason for the delay in his renewal.

“It’s a difficult situation because Chelsea offered me two years and they are not going to change what they offered. I said I wanted three more years,” he told Esporte Interativo.

“The situation is difficult because of this. I really don’t know if it will be possible [to stay]. My goal is to continue working and focus on the remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning games. 

“I think it’s difficult [to stay]. Let’s see what happens”
