The wife of Chelsea midfielder Willian has hinted that he could depart Stamford Bridge this summer.

The 31-year-old only has a matter of months left on his contract and is yet to put pen to paper on an extension.

Willian has previously been linked with a reunion with his former boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham with the North London side said to be keen on his signature (Evening Standard).

Chelsea are said to have only offered the Brazilian a two-year extension while he is holding out for at least a three-year agreement along with an increase in his £110,000-a-week wages (ESPN Brasil).

His wife, Vanessa Martins stated in footage posted to her Instagram story that their ‘days are being numbered’ whilst also suggesting that ‘good things are on the way’.

Within the interview, Vanessa asks her daughter if she likes living in London to which she responded: ‘Love London? Yes’.

Willian scored both goals in Chelsea’s 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium prior to Christmas and famously came close to a move to Spurs in 2013, before deciding to join Mourinho’s Chelsea (Guardian).

After Chelsea’s 4-0 win against Everton, Willian tried to clear up his wife’s comments.

He told ESPN Brasil: ‘Look, I always like to make it very clear the respect I have for this club, the affection I have for Chelsea too. 

‘Regardless of my situation, whether I’ll stay or not, one thing I can say: I’ll always try to do my best, give my best on the pitch for this team. 

‘There’s really no offer from any club. So I wanted to make this very clear, that I’m still a Chelsea player, and I’ll always try to do my best until the end of my contract. Whether I stay or not, we’ll see that in the future.

‘We really like London, I’ve said this many times. It’s a city that my family and I love to live in, we love the city. We love the city and I really don’t know why she posted it. It really is because the situation of the contract here isn’t easy. 

‘But I hope that in the next few weeks or months this can be sorted. And then you’ll know if I’ll stay or not. But what I can say is that I’ll always try to do my best for the team.

‘I still don’t know. There’s nothing with any team. There’s no offer from any team. My negotiation for now is with Chelsea. There’s still nothing concrete from any team. And the situation with Chelsea is still that way. Chelsea offered me two, I demanded three, and it stopped there. There’s nothing much.’
