LONDON: Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said he is unsure if Brazilian winger Willian will remain at the English Premier League soccer club next season but expects no bitterness from both parties if he does depart.
British media has reported that Willian is on the verge of joining Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal on a three-year deal after his current employers only offered him a two-year extension which left him disappointed.
The 31-year-old Willian's contract expires at the end of Chelsea's Champions League campaign. Lampard's side take on Bayern Munich in the last-16 second-leg on Saturday, a game Willian will miss due to an ankle injury. "I haven't got an answer" about whether Willian will leave, "because Willian remains our player at the moment. It actually doesn't matter about disappointment from any party in this situation," Lampard told reporters. Agencies
