Brazilian star Willian has admitted his time at Chelsea is coming to an end after revealing he is no longer talking to the club about a new contract.
Willian’s deal at Stamford Bridge expires on June 30 and contract negotiations have now ended after both parties failed to reach an agreement.
Willian was hoping to sign a new three-year deal but the Blues have only been willing to offer him a two-year contract.
“Really a very beautiful story that I built at this club, I have a very special affection for the fans, for the people who work there and I identified myself a lot here,” he told Brazilian publication Expediente Futebol.
“Everyone knows that my contract ends now in a few months, so the renewal is really a difficult thing to happen.
“I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years, I asked for three and it ended there, we didn’t talk anymore, we didn’t negotiate anymore.”
Willian is likely to be in high demand this summer and was recently linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus, who are managed by former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.
