Willian 'upset' at Chelsea move denial
Shakhtar midfielder Willian has told reporters that he is "upset" at not being allowed the opportunity to join Champions League winners Chelsea.
Willian, 23, has been linked with Chelsea since January, but has seen several bids turned down by the Ukranian side.
Manager Mircea Lucescu revealed that Chelsea had made a €34 million bid for the tricky wide-man, but Willian disputes his claim.
Speaking to Globo Esporte, Willian said: "I don't know what the coach said, but the correct value is €25 million (£19.5 million). Regardless of the price, it is clear that the desire is great to play at a club like Chelsea, the champion of the Champions League.
"I'm really upset with the board for not letting me leave. It would be good for me and also for the club. I'd be in a big city and have the chance to grow professionally. This is not a message to anyone - everyone knows I want to leave."
With Chelsea set to play his former side Corinthians in this December's Club World Cup, Willian is hoping for the opportunity to take on the Timão:
"It would be an extra special moment for me," he said. "I was raised in Corinthians and to be there in the shirt of Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world, would be priceless.
"I was with David Luiz and Ramires in the Selecao. If this actually happens, it will be great."
