Report: Willian ready to tear up Arsenal contract
Willian is ready to tear up the rest of his contract with Arsenal to pave the way for a move to Corinthians, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The 33-year-old looks set to bring the curtain down on a torrid spell at the Emirates. The Brazilian has never managed to silence his doubters following his arrival in North London.
Corinthians have been linked with the attacking midfielder for a little while. But with Willian earning more than £220,000-a-week, fans may have feared how exactly Arsenal were going to be able to offload the player.
His deal with the Gunners has two years left to run. And according to the Daily Mail, he is set to earn £20 million should he see out his deal.
But it seems that Willian is about to do Arsenal a huge favour.
According to the Daily Mail, he is ready to rip up his contract and sign for Corinthians on reduced terms.
Willian about to bail Arsenal hierarchy out with decision on contract
Willian never won the fans over during his time at the Emirates. His performances were extremely underwhelming given the deal handed to him.
Of course, some will defend the Brazilian for taking such lucrative terms. If Arsenal are prepared to offer him that, then why would he not accept?
But Arsenal supporters had every right to expect a lot more. Thankfully, it appears that he is about to bail the Gunners out as he looks set to move.
They are about to save a huge amount with him reportedly agreeing to leave at no additional cost.
And that could be a huge boost heading into the final days of the window.
