Willian eager to stay at Chelsea despite exit rumours

The Warm Down Frustration for Newcastle and Benitez after Chelsea defeat 

However, Sarri might turn down the offer just as he reportedly did to Barcelona's player-plus-cash move for the Brazilian during the week.

Willian scored the winning goal in Chelsea's Premier League 2-1 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League.

Willian has just 18 months left on his contract and there is a consensus that an exit for the player will not be the worst decision especially if they get anywhere close to the figure quoted in this particular transfer deal. "I need an option for Jorginho".

Blues boss Sarri is adamant that he wants to hold onto the 30-year-old, and said: "Of course I don't want to lose him".

"Maybe he has 12 years of contract, I don't know".

Willian's third Premier League goal of the season came at the end of a week that saw fresh speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, though sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are reluctant to sell him in January amid concerns that it could damage Sarri's ability to deliver a top-four finish.

But the Spaniard, who will not walk away from the task and is chasing Atlanta United striker Miguel Almiron to try to solve his problems, added: "If we work like we did at Chelsea and play with the same passion and intensity, I believe we will stay up".

"In the last 5 matches it was hard to score, today we did after nine minutes".

"In my opinion Willian has to stay with us. For us he's fundamental".

"We started well for 10 minutes but after the goal we thought "now it is easy", but it wasn't", Sarri said. [Hudson-Odoi] is becoming for us a really important player.

Once again, Sarri stubbornly stuck to his experiment with Eden Hazard as Chelsea's central striker despite the Belgian star's dislike of the tactic. We need to improve in attacking the box. So we need Pedro.

Sarri said: "I was happy with the result, I was happy with the performance at Tottenham".

But it took only nine minutes for the Blues to go in front as Newcastle's five-man defence was carved open easily.
