Willian says he would have left if Conte had stayed at Chelsea

Brazilian Willian, 30, was linked with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United this summer but committed his future to the Blues in early August. Willian scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists in 55 appearances for Chelsea last season.

Chelsea winger Willian says there is “no chance” he would be at the club had former head coach Antonio Conte still been in charge.Willian eventually chose to remain with the Blues after Conte was replaced by compatriot Maurizio Sarri in July.

The Blues next face London rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge and Willian is confident of ending a run of six games without a win against the Gunners.

“I think we have a good chance to turn the results around against them because now we have a different way to play football,” he said.
