Chelsea is going to keep its Player of the Year around for a few more seasons, and he could even up his game given the new regime at Stamford Bridge.
Willian, who turns 28 in August, signed a new four-year deal with the London outfit, and positionally could reap the rewards of Antonio Conte’s system.

Willian is not only creative, but he has a relentless work rate and has been an effective player in Europe for both Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk.
“I’m very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. It’s a dream to continue with this club and over the next four years I will try to help the team win more trophies.
“It’s been an amazing time for me since I joined the club three years ago, I’ve won titles and last season I was named Chelsea Player of the Year.”
This is a promising move for Conte, and Willian should build on his fine season with a regular boss.
