Chelsea veteran ​Willian: I'd love Corinthians return one day

Chelsea winger Willian admits that he wants to return to Corinthians one day.

The Brazilian, who is in good form with the Blues this season, hints that he may go back to his old club one day.

The 31-year-old is set to become a free agent in 2020 as his Chelsea contract winds down.

Speaking about the future with DAZN, Willian said: "If I have to return to Brazil, I'd like to play at Corinthians again.

"It represents a lot, I was born and raised there, my footballing career began there when I was nine, I've spent my entire childhood there.

"I've been a Corinthians fan since I was little, even before I played there, my family also supports the club.

"So when I got there all my relatives were very happy, and then, after I got to the first team, everyone was overjoyed."
