Real Madrid reject Chelsea midfielder Willian

Chelsea midfielder Willian has been turned down by Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Off contract at the end of next month, Willian's minders are now drumming up interest in the Brazilian across Europe.

Okdiario says Willian has been offered to Real, but the feedback was negative. The midfielder's age and style of play doesn't fit for Real's transfer agenda. Zidane has other ideas of what he wants in midfield next season.

Staying in London, where Tottenham and Arsenal are keen, is now firming as the most likely option for Willian this summer.
