Milan Ready To Rival Chelsea For Shakhtar’s Willian Signature

Chelsea are likely to face strong competition from Milan for the signature of Shakhtar’s star Willian in the summer transfer window…

Sources in Italy have confirmed that Shakhtar Donetsk schemer Willian is a summer transfer target for Milan.

The Brazilian was the subject of fierce interest from English giants Chelsea in the January transfer window and it has been claimed that the Blues are on the verge of snaring the player in the summer.

But the situation may yet be complicated by the arrival of Milan on the scene, with coach Massimiliano Allegri keen on the 23-year-old.

In Ukraine, Shakhtar appear resigned to Willian’s departure, but are determined to extract the very highest price for the former Corinthians star.

Willian landed at Shakhtar in 2007 after a series of impressive displays for Brazil’s Under-20 side.

The player’s acquisition was a further expansion of the Ukrainian club’s policy of buying young South American talents.

Whether Willian’s head will be turned by the prospect of a switch to Milan remains to be seen, but the Rossoneri may be in a position to offer Champions League football which Chelsea cannot match.

The Brazilian has picked up three Ukrainian Premier League titles, two Ukrainian Cups, two Ukrainian Super Cups and one UEFA Cup during his stint at the Donbass Arena.

  1. I guess he is going to be a free agent. Not pretty sure, but his contract is expiring… Or no?

    And he is a good idea. A far better player than Ederson. Not a superstar – far from it – but he is going to be a solid player if Galliani hire him.
