Chelsea star Willian has pledged his future to the Premier League champions and delievered a huge snub to former boss Jose Mourinho.
The Brazilian came off the bench to help the Blues seal the Premier League title at West Brom last Friday with two games to spare.
Willian’s influence on Chelsea has diminished and he has started just 13 league games this term, as opposed to 32 last season when Jose Mourinho was partly in charge.
But despite the lack of game time under Antonio Conte, the former Anzhi attacker has no plans to leave Stamford Bridge.
Willian said:“My future is here with Chelsea, I have a contract until 2020 and I’m happy.”
The Brazilian international played a key role in Chelsea’s title winning side in 2015 and was influential in the Blues revival after the Portuguese was sacked last season.
But Conte’s change to a 3-4-3 formation, alongside Pedro and Eden Hazard’s impressive form, has limited his opportunities.
Mourinho is a big admirer of Willian and was plotting a January move, but could look to tempt him to Old Trafford with the lure of regular football next season.
Willian added:“I know sometimes players always want to play but I understand why I’m not playing much.”
