Brazilian attacker Willian has signed a new four-year deal with Premier League side Chelsea.
The 27-year-old joined the Blues from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 and has scored 19 times in 140 appearances for the English club, including 11 goals during the 2015-16 campaign.
It had been claimed that Jose Mourinho wanted to bring the Brazil international to Manchester United this summer, but the versatile forward has now committed his long-term future to Chelsea with a deal that will run until 2020.
“I’m very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. It’s a dream to continue with this club and over the next four years I will try to help the team win more trophies,” Willian told the club’s official website.
“It’s been an amazing time for me since I joined the club three years ago, I’ve won titles and last season I was named Chelsea Player of the Year. I hope to be able to stay at that level during the coming seasons and achieve more success.”
