Willian wants long-term Chelsea commitment

Willian says he wants to remain at Chelsea for the next five years.

On Sunday, the Brazilian denied he was ever close to leaving Stamford Bridge over the summer. He was linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United.

But the 29-year-old insists he wants to remain a Blue for the foreseeable future.

"When I arrived here my plan was to stay here as long as possible and now I am here five years I hope to stay five more!" Willian said.

"I know I have two years of contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League.

"I am very happy to be here five years. I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments, and a few sad moments as well but that is part of football, but these five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player."
