Chelsea attacker Willian’s future at the club appears to be in doubt because of his strained relationship with Antonio Conte and the fact that Manchester United are eyeing a move for the Brazilian, and Blues fans have been quick to have their say on what the future holds for the forward, who earns £120,000-a-week according to The Telegraph.
The 29-year-old has two years remaining on his contract at the club, but a post on his Instagram site where he covered Conte with trophy emojis suggest the pair don’t get on, although the Italian could still be on his way out of west London despite the 1-0 win against the Red Devils in the FA Cup final on Sunday.
Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is one of the potential candidates to replace him, and the Stamford Bridge faithful have taken to social media to give their thoughts on Willian and the potential of him linking up with Sarri in the future.
While one said “Willian could be great under Sarri, but I don’t want him”, another said “he would fit the front three perfectly”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Chelsea should sack conte and sell willian but appoint SARRI

Should probably stay put – if Sarri comes in at Chelsea then Willian would fit into his 4-3-3 perfectly. Or just go to United and be treated the same way by Mourinho. Grass not always greener https://t.co/hs98sAZ9GF

Willian could be great under Sarri, but I don't want him at cfc anymore. Bailey good for me. Even Mahrez.

If Sarri did get appointed it'd be a shame if Willian left. He would fit the front 3 perfectly.

Sarri's first job to kick Willian out of the club and swap him for Martial. #CFC

Issues are clear. But logic needs to prevail here; do we allow player power to set in again? And also, KEEP WILLIAN AT ALL COSTS. DO NOT SELL ONE OF YOUR BEST PLAYERS TO A RIVAL YET AGAIN. https://t.co/152z8qVnFg
