Ex-Arsenal and Chelsea star Willian tears up Corinthians contract and in talks over free transfer move to Fulham

E

FORMER Arsenal and Chelsea star Willian has left Corinthians after tearing up his contract.

And the Brazilian winger is now reportedly in talks with newly-promoted Fulham.

Willian rejoined boyhood club Corinthians last summer after leaving Arsenal just one year into a three-year deal.

But the 34-year-old did not score a single goal in nine league games for his new side.

And he failed to make an impact as Corinthians were dumped out of the Copa Libertadores 3-0 by rivals Flamengo on Wednesday.

Despite having a year left on his contract, Willian has now agreed to terminate his deal.

He declared: “I give up everything I have to receive.

“I know my performance wasn’t what I expected, but I’ve never been a player to score 20 or 30 goals a season.”

Willian is now jetting back to live in London with his family.

And Goal claims the playmaker could now be set for a third spell in the English capital with Fulham.

Willian is believed to have opened talks with Marco Silva’s side before his Corinthians contract was torn up.

Fulham have already swooped for several exciting attackers including Manor Solomon and compatriot Andreas Pereira.

And Willian could now be ready to join the Cottagers on a one-year deal as they look to avoid another immediate relegation to the Championship.

Despite his flop season at Arsenal, Willian is best remembered by Premier League fans for his time at Chelsea.

He spent seven seasons at Chelsea, scoring 63 goals in 339 games.

Willian won numerous trophies, including an FA Cup, Europa League and two titles.

He is also a Copa America winner, helping Brazil to the trophy in 2019 after earning 70 caps for his country.
