Chelsea and Tottenham target Willian is happy with his current form at Shakhtar
Shakhtar star Willian, who has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Tottenham, has admitted he is happy in the Ukraine and is concentrating on making history with his current club. However, he still hopes to one day move to a top European team.
Willian, 24, has been in outstanding form for Shakhtar in the Uefa Champions League this season and is delighted that his team need just a draw in their final group game against Juventus to top the group and to progress to the last 16.
He told Globo Esporte that he is happy with his current form. He said: "I am very happy. I always battle and take the field and try to do my best. I try to help my team in the best way, by scoring goals, by giving passes.
"Before starting the Champions League I tried to train well, always have been training well. To stay well focused. That was my goal and thank God this is happening and I'm playing well."
The forward recently scored twice in his sides 3-2 defeat away to Chelsea and Willian admitted that he likes to play his normal game, regardless of the opponent.
"I think regardless of opponent I'll never change my playing style, my way of playing. Of course we respect what the coach's order, whether to go back and help in marking. But my style of play with the ball is the same,dribbling, pulling, kicking, putting fellow players in front of the goal. It is what I seek."
And the player would not be drawn on whether or not he will seek a transfer this January to one of Europe's top clubs.
"At the moment I am very calm. I am very happy with this phase I'm going through and I intend to keep giving my good play in this sequence.
"As for a possible transfer proposal that will come, that's another thing. But we always work to make it happen. I'm sure many people are seeing my work, there will be offers from big clubs. Who will decide my future with the club is my representatives. I'm concentrating on helping Shakhtar in the Champions League and continue making history."
