Sharing is Caring

Willian Borges da Silva has confirmed that he is leaving Chelsea after the expiration of his contract.

The Brazilian international is set to join Arsenal on a three year contract.

Willian Borges da Silva, 32, joined Chelsea in 2013 from Ukranian side Shakhtar Donetsk and has made 234 league appearances for the Blues.

He won two league titles, One FA Cup, one EFL Cup and the Europa League during his seven-year stay at the London club.

Willian Borges da Silva will be leaving Stamford Bridge after failing to agree to a new contract.

He wrote a letter to the Chelsea fans, saying an emotional goodbye.

“They were seven wonderful years,” he tweeted.

“In August 2013 when I received the offer from Chelsea, I was convinced that this was where I had to play.

“There were so many happy times, some sad, there were trophies and it was always very intense.

“I am really grateful to the Chelsea fans for the affectionate way they welcomed me to Stamford Bridge and their support throughout my time at the club.

“The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my team-mates. I will miss all of the staff at the club who’ve always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans.

“I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and I always did my best in a Chelsea shirt!”

Winger Pedro also confirmed on Sunday that he will be leaving Chelsea. He is set to join Italian side Roma on a two-year deal.
