The 32-year-old star has now made it clear that he is not ready to truncate his bonds with Blues despite spending seven years at Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t want to talk to them [other clubs] because I have a contract until the end of the season,” Willian said

“I am a Chelsea player but I just want to say the club know what I want to do.”

Chelsea boss Lampard once said he was in talks with the winger and his representative over a potential contract extension while passing confidence vote on the Brazilian’s performance.

“He’s in talks with the club [about a contract], he speaks with the club on the money side of it.

“[He’s been] Great for me, especially when he plays like he did the other day. It was an incredible performance. He has that talent,” the Blues boss said.
