Willian has finally opened up on why he’s leaving Chelsea to join their London rival, Arsenal.
Recall that Arsenal was victorious over Chelsea in the FA cup final and Willian was not part of the game due to injury.
Willian has reportedly been left ‘upset and offended’ by how his time at Chelsea has come to an end.
According to ESPN, the Brazilian – who is understood to be close to joining Arsenal – felt as though the Blues lacked the desire to keep him.
This is despite the 31-year-old rejecting a two-year deal by Chelsea to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.
Willian is keen to remain in London, choosing to sign for Arsenal ahead of Barcelona and Inter Miami.
