Willian reveals regret over failed Chelsea move

Chelsea's January transfer target Willian has expressed his regret at not being able to join the Premier League club in the summer, the Daily Mail has reported.

Willian, currently plying his trade for Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk, has said that he was close to a move in the summer, but Shakhtar decided to hold on to him. Having scored four goals in the knockout stages of the Champions League, Willian is once again attracting transfer speculation, and the Brazilian says that Stamford Bridge is still the dream. “My goal is to play for a bigger club in a high level league,” he said.


My desire was there, with a £20.3m offer from a big club like Chelsea. I wanted to pack my things and go, but I can't do that as I am under contract.


Chelsea are heavily tipped to enter the transfer market given Daniel Sturridge is set to join Liverpool once the transfer window opens. The Blues are currently third in the Premier League, some 13 points behind league leaders Manchester United. Chelsea, however, are no longer in the Champions League, and given Shakhtar are still in the competition, with a tie against Galatasaray coming up in February, a move for Willian would mean he would miss out on playing in Europe for the rest of the season as he would be cup-tied for Chelsea’s Europa League campaign.


However, he has continued to express his desire to one day make the move to Stamford Bridge. “I have tried to convince them [Shakhtar] many times to let me go. I know that Juventus and Chelsea have made offers, to buy me and that motivates me a lot.


The club know that I want to leave, everyone knows that. The president has told me that he'll let me go for £24.4m and my intention is to sign for a big club.
