Willian in no rush to discuss new Chelsea deal

Willian has insisted he is in no rush to resolve his long-term future.

While the spotlight has been on Eden Hazard, whose Chelsea contract expires next year, Willian’s Blues deal is up then as well.

The Brazilian previously revealed he would have left Stamford Bridge had ex-boss Antonio Conte stayed in charge.

But Willian is happy at the club under Maurizio Sarri and will bide his time before entering talks over a new contract.

He said: “I’m fine. No rush about that. We can talk about that in the future, no problem.”

Meanwhile, Willian’s Chelsea and Brazil team-mate David Luiz is now in the final six months of his contract at the Bridge.

Luiz, in his second spell at Chelsea, turns 32 this year and is now free to hold talks with overseas clubs.

But Willian believes the club are keen to keep Luiz.

He said: “We have to see if they club will want him. I think they want (him). For me, I want him to stay.”

Luiz also found himself out of favour under Conte and has re-established himself as a first-team regular since Sarri took over.

Sarri has said he wants to keep both Luiz and Cesc Fabregas, whose contract also expires at the end of the season.
