In the last few weeks football experts and journalists have been focusing on the transfers of several players, including Chelsea player Willian. His contract will expire in June and it doesn’t seem like he will sign an extension. So we took a look at his possible new destinations according to Willian next club bets.
Willian has been at Chelsea since 2013. He won the Premier League, the League Cup and the Europa League with the club. He was voted Player of the Year by the fans in the 2015/16 season and by the Premier League players as well. The Brazil midfielder has become an important player of the team, thanks to his great attacking skills. He is not only a fast and technically gifted player but a hard-working one as well. After Eden Hazard’s departure last season, he was given the number 10 shirt, meaning his importance. But his talks with the club management about his new contract didn’t go too well. It looks very likely now that he will leave the club in the summer.
Willian next club bets predict his transfer to another PL club
Online sportsbooks in the UK are giving the smallest odds for his move to another London club, Tottenham Hotspurs with the odds of 3.00. Spurs was an alternative option even in 2013, when at the end William joined Chelsea. But his move to Tottenham seems very likely now as he could rejoin his former manager, Jose Mourinho. Plus he could stay in London where he and his family love to live. And Spurs could gain a great player for free, which is very rare in the world of football.
But other Premier League clubs think the same way, including current leader Liverpool. The Reds have offered him very tempting conditions according to a Spanish paper, with a high salary and a generous signing fee. But other London club Arsenal has also shown interest in signing Willian. The Gunners try to make a much stronger team next season. And finally produce some results under new manager Mikel Arteta. The 31-year-old player would be a big asset for the team, though his move to big rivals surely wouldn’t go well with the Chelsea fans. In Willian next club bets his move to Liverpool has the odds of 6.50 while Arsenal’s is 8.50 at 1xBet.
Interests from foreign clubs
Online gambling sites in the UK are also mentioning a few top European clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Barcelona as his possible new clubs. Willian played for Shakhtar Donetsk before joining Chelsea and won the UEFA Cup in 2009 with the club. After spending 7 years in the UK, he might be tempted to play in another top European league. Rumors mentioned FC Barcelona or Real Madrid as his favorites where he could play with some of his Brazil teammates as well.
The Catalan club tried to sign Willian in 2018 but their offer was rejected by Chelsea. Now they might try again, even though the situation at the club is not perfect at the moment. They also try to sell a few players so it is not sure they will have enough money for his signing. Probably Willian wouldn’t say no to an offer from them though. The odds for Barcelona to be his new club is 13.00 on 1xBet.
