Could Willian join Juventus on a free transfer?
Chelsea and Brazilian star Willian has less than a year remaining on his current contract and could leave the club as a free agent in the summer if they do not agree to a contract extension. This will no doubt attract the interest of Barcelona who have been pursuing the winger for a number of years and have had many bids rejected. It's thought however that Juventus are in the pole position to land the man and have moved into the bookies favourite to sign Willian accoridng to (Tuttosport).
This would come as a huge blow to Frank Lampard and his young Chelsea team that are reliant on the experience of players such as Willian to inspire the younger generation of players. Chelsea have been on a 2 year transfer embargo however that ends in the Summer and it is expected that Chelsea will spend big to close the gap on the top 2. Could this be enough to persuade Willian to sign a new deal and stay with the London club. Willian has won a European Cup and a Premier League title in his time at Chelsea and has remained a fans favourite throughout his time.
