It appears the situation is now dire for Willian, who doesn’t know if an agreement can be made. 

‘Chelsea offered me two years, and they are not going to change what they offered,’ Willian told Esporte Interativo after Chelsea’s defeat by Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

‘I said I wanted three more years. The situation is difficult because of this, I really don’t know if it will be possible. 

‘My goal is to continue working and focus on this remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning the games for the remainder of the season.

Willian came on to replace Ross Barkley in the 61st minute against Bayern, who romped to a 3-0 win to all but end the tie.

The forward has been a long-term target for Barcelona while Tottenham have also been linked with a move for him. 

Willian, who is in his seventh season at Chelsea, has scored five goals and claimed five assists in 34 games this season.
