Willian ‘Really Happy’ At Chelsea
Chelsea winger Willian has moved to cool speculation over a potential move this summer after coming on as a substitute during the Blues’ 2-0 Community Shield loss to Manchester City on Sunday.
The Brazilian has been subject to bids from Barcelona and Manchester United this summer and speculation was increased by his late return from holiday after representing his country at the World Cup.
The player insisted it was a passport issue and says he is not unhappy at Chelsea, “This is just the beginning," he said after the game. "I've been only in three training sessions. We have a new season with a new philosophy, everything is new for everyone.
“But this team has everything to improve in all aspects. The people know we have a lot of competitions to play. If we work hard we can achieve a lot of things.” When pressed on what has been said between he and boss Maurizio Sarri, Willian was circumspect.
“I always told him I’m really happy playing for Chelsea. I never talk about me leaving the club.”
