Chelsea’s standoff with Willian over contract extension attracts new suitor in summer transfer battle

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in joining the queue for Chelsea forward Willian next summer with the Blues still way apart in their negotiations with the player’s representatives over a new deal.

The winger is yet to commit his future to the Stamford Bridge outfit with a little more than a year remaining on his current deal. Willian’s contract at Chelsea expires in the summer of 2020 and at 30 years old, he is not expecting to be given more than a one-year deal to remain at the club.

That policy has forced a few players out, with the latest being Cesc Fabregas who joined AS Monaco in the January transfer window and now PSG are alerted to Willian’s situation according to a report by TeamTalk. The Sun says the Brazil international is only interested in a three-year deal but Chelsea will offer a one-year renewable contract.

The Sun goes on to say Chelsea could lose one of the club’s best players should they insist on making him sign the deal on offer.
