REVEALED: Willian insulted by Chelsea treatment ahead of Arsenal move

Willian is angry with the way his departure from Chelsea has been handled.

ESPN says Willian has been left feeling "upset and offended" after his seven-year stay at the club came crashing down to a bitter end.

The 31-year-old has penned a three-year contract to join London rivals Arsenal after his talks over a new deal to remain at Stamford Bridge collapsed.

The winger had wanted a three-year extension but was instead offered a 'take it or leave it' rebuttal from director Marina Granovskaia before the coronavirus crisis brought a temporary halt to the season.

The impasse has recently allowed Arsenal to swoop in and seal the deal on a free transfer. Willian will earn £100,000-a-week at his new club, despite them appearing to be cash-strapped during an uncertain transfer window.
