The latest on Willian
Chelsea look set to lose Willian after seven years at Stamford Bridge. The winger is looking for a three-year deal from the club, and contract talks seem to have hit a snag over this rather than wages.
For years, Chelsea’s policy has remained similar – in that any players aged above 30 are only offered one year extensions to their existing contracts. However, David Luiz’s extension was the anomaly to the rule, and Chelsea ended up receiving £7million for the Brazilian in January.
Willian’s negotiations seem to have hit that stumbling block and the winger may end up staying in London, having linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, managed by his former boss Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea ready to sell N’Golo Kante this summer
The Frenchman has been a stalwart since his arrival at the club in 2016, and remains a popular figure among fans and staff at the club, but could be allowed to leave if the right offer comes in.
Kante has been limited to just 22 appearances in all competitions this year and may seek a future beyond the Bridge – with PSG and Real Madrid primed to prize him away from London. With three years still left on his deal, according to 90min , it may take a significant sum to secure his signature.
A move to PSG would be a move home for the 29 year old, while Madrid represents a chance at the highest level of world football and a chance to work under French legend, Zinedine Zidane – alongside fellow Frenchmen, Raphael Varane, Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy.
