Willian confirms Chelsea exit after seven years

Baku, August 10, AZERTAC

Brazilian midfielder Willian has confirmed he will leave Chelsea after seven ‘wonderful’ years at Stamford Bridge, according to Reuters.

The 32-year-old, linked with a move across town to Arsenal, posted a farewell letter to the club's fans on Twitter.

Willian, who began his career with Corinthians in Sao Paulo, joined Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 and made over 300 appearances for the club, winning two Premier League titles.

He was out of contract this summer and had failed to agree a new long-term deal with the club.

Spanish midfielder Pedro also announced he was leaving the club on Sunday after five years.
