Brazil international Willian looks set to depart Chelsea this summer after he was told that it is "impossible" for him to secure a new three-year deal.

The west London club are willing to offer the former Shaktar Donetsk winger a two-year contract. The 31-year-old's current contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire in a few months and as things stand, both parties haven't been able to reach an agreement. According to the Mirror, Chelsea are keen not to tie Willian down for too long as they plot a big money move for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho, who would provide competition for the Brazil forward. “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,” Willian told Fox Sports. “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. "Three years… Chelsea said it would be impossible, so for now there's this difficulty, but nothing is impossible. “We don’t know what can happen, suddenly we could make a deal and get it right. But what I can say today is that my contract is going over and I will be free to negotiate with any team.”
