Willian said: "A lot of people, they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never". "It makes me feel sad and obviously they don't know all the truth", he said, as reported by Sky Sports.

"I think in March the decision was already made and I thought the club would accept it".

Chelsea signed the Brazilian global in the summer of 2013 from the ranks of Anzhi Makhachkala and he has been an instrumental player for the London based outfit.

"Obviously it's a pity because I love Chelsea".

Having had a wealth of experience playing on either flank for club and country, Willian has opened up on the differences of his role between Chelsea and Brazil, saying he has a greater licence to roam with the former. "Hopefully it will turn around".

Although he played a lot of matches, Robinho was unable to establish himself as much as he would have liked at Real, and eventually joined Manchester City two years later. "However, Real Madrid ended up badly with them, they didn't like the way that Chelsea sold shirts with my name on them before the deal was done", said Robinho.

"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!".

"I know that a lot of Chelsea fans will understand my decision".

"I had a chance to go back to Spain to be closer to my kids and that was important to me".

Manchester United target Willian has reportedly revealed that he wants to stay back at Chelsea for another five years. Brazil was more static, I have to play more on the right and Neymar more on the left, so we can not change positions. He went on to make 154 appearances for the club, securing another league title, an FA Cup and a League Cup.
