Shakhtar ace Willian again iterates Chelsea desire

Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian admits he wanted to leave for Chelsea last summer.

Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian admits he wanted to leave for Chelsea last summer.

The Brazilian was the subject of a £20million offer from the Blues in the last transfer window but Shakhtar turned down the overtures from the European champions.

Willian has made it clear on a number of occasions that he is keen to join Chelsea and once again he is of the belief that a move away from Donetsk would be good for him.

"My goal is to play for a bigger club in a high level league,” he told ESPN.com.br.

"If I tell you that I was happy, I would be lying. My desire was there, with a €25million (£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.

"It shows how much Shakhtar like me and shows that I am doing a good job, which is why they wanted me to stay.

"The club know that I want to leave, everyone knows that. The president has told me that he'll let me go for €30million (£24.4m) and my intention is to sign for a big club."
