It’s not often you see footballers reacting to transfer rumours regarding their future but Willian has done just that.

The 29-year-old quoted Brazilian journalist Sandro Barboza who reported on Twitter that the player was open to moving back to Brazil to play for Palmeiras.

Willian’s tweet translates to English as:

“Hello Sandro, all right? Sorry, but I’m not negotiating with Palmeiras and my agent has received no contact from the Club. I have no plans to return to Brazil right now. A hug!”

Since Eden Hazard’s return and the competiton Pedro provides, Willian hasn’t featured for Chelsea perhaps as much as he would like.

However, this tweet has confirmed Willian’s commitment to the club for the time being.
