Willian cut a frustrated figure under Conte at times. He started only 20 Premier League matches for Chelsea in the 2017-18 season, featuring as a substitute on a further 16 occasions.

The Brazil playmaker did not start any games after reacting angrily to being substituted in the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton on April 22.

Willian has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Barcelona.
