Willian may have played his last game for Chelsea after he was said to have agreed a three-year deal with rivals Arsenal this summer.

The move will see the 31-year-old earn about £100k-a-week at the Emirates Stadium - and this is coming days after the club's plans to render 55 staff redundant.

Sources close to Stamford Bridge revealed that the Brazilian winger turned down a chance to remain at the club until the summer of 2022 after the expiration of his current deal this month.

SunSport reports that the Blues have a long-standing policy that stops them from handing a player above 30 more than one-year extensions.

However, Arsenal have exploited the crack in Willian's relationship with his club and lure him to North London where he will play until he turns 34 should they both agree terms.

Earlier this week, PES was said to have leaked the deal after dressing Willian up in an Arsenal shirt in a seven-second clip.

The Gunners have a partnership video game series Pro Evo - whose game rivals the FIFA franchise as the biggest on PS4 and Xbox One.

The clip says "new signing" at the beginning and appears to show the 31-year-old Brazilian in Arsenal colours with "Willian" across the screen. A PES 2021 watermark is visible in the bottom left corner.
