Willian has pledged to play for Chelsea beyond the end of his contract if the Premier League requires a summer finish due to the coronavirus.
The Brazil winger has been locked in discussions over a new deal, previously revealing he was holding out for a three-year extension with Chelsea only offering two-year terms.
Arsenal, Tottenham and Barcelona have all monitored Willian’s situation with his current contract ending this summer.
The Football Association postponing the English professional game until April 30 and pledging to extend the 2019/20 season “indefinitely” raises the prospect of top stars being asked to play on past the expiry of current deals.
And Willian has admitted he would repay Chelsea’s loyalty and complete the season with the Blues, even if the campaign extends past the end of his Stamford Bridge terms on June 30.
“My contract really ends I think in July,” said Willian. “If I had to play on those dates, in these months, I think it would be no problem for me to end the league in a way which would be loyal to the club, as they always were with me, regardless of a signed paper.”
“It’s clear that this is not a certainty, we don’t know what can happen,” Willian told Brazilian TV station Esporte Interativo.
“But without a doubt, as always, I will always be ready to give the best to my club regardless of my contract situation.”
