Chelsea fans react as Willian plots Stamford Bridge return
Some reports emerged yesterday from Sky Sports that claimed Arsenal winger Willian is keen on a return to Chelsea this summer.
The 32-year-old left Stamford Bridge to sign for the Gunners during the summer of 2020, ending a long association with the Blues.
His maiden campaign across London didn’t go according to plan though. He scored just one and registered seven assists from his 37 outings.
Now, he’s plotting a return to Stamford Bridge – although naturally, the club’s supporters aren’t keen on seeing him back.
Willian scored 63 goals and claimed 62 assists during 339 appearances for Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles.
It’s probably no surprise that he’s wanting a return to the club, given his year spent struggling for form at the Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea are unlikely to take a backward step under Thomas Tuchel though. The Frenchman will have his own ideas this summer and they’re unlikely to include Willian.
The Brazilian earns £192,000-a-week at Arsenal and they’ll do extremely well to get him off the wage budget.
Chelsea fans are certainly amused by Willian’s suggestion and have been reacting on Twitter to the latest reports.
Here is what they had to say as the flyer apparently eyes a return this summer.
