Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer Brazilian winger Willian a new two-year deal in a bid to ward off interest from their direct Premier League rivals Manchester United.

The Brazilian forward was rumoured with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with the Red Devils and La Liga giants Barcelona both credited with an interest amid reports that he was unhappy at Chelsea.

Brazil international forward Willian recently admitted that he would have left if Antonio Conte stayed as manager, however, insisted that he is happy to remain at Chelsea under new head-coach Maurizio Sarri.

The Mirror reports that Chelsa are now willing to break their club policy by offering Brazilian forward a new two-year contract.

The Blues usually only offer players over the age of 30 one-year extensions, although they are willing to keep Willian at Stamford Bridge, he has celebrated his 30th birthday just last week.

Brazil international has just under two years left on his current deal, however, the new deal would see his £120,000-a-week wages increase.
