I love Willian. We better not sell him. :(

Especially not to a rival.

Don't think we will let him go, unless we got Griezmann or someone else on the same level.

Either we were so sure of winning we got Willian's dad in, or, he's been coming to multiple games. Either way Willian just became unsellable. He can be a sub. Just please convert him to a wing back :wub:And he's still a fine typical winger in cup games honestly, just not vs. PL sides. We must keep him no matter how broken he becomes. I can't go through the breakup Cap went through with Kalou.

Retaining stellar names such as Eden Hazard will be critical, as well as Willian and other elite squad players. “My future is here with Chelsea,” said Brazil forwardWillian, last season’s player of the year, who has started 13 league games this time round. “I have a contract until 2020 and I am happy here.

“I know sometimes players always want to play, but I understand why I don’t play much. I am happy and always try to help the team when I come in for the second half. I respect the decision of Conte if he needs me in the second half or to start the game. I have to think about the group, about the team. We deserve to be champions.”

We will need strong bench alternatives next season plus Willian is Blue through and through so it's a no brainer.

11 goals and 4 assists in all comps. Not bad. Maybe being a strong squad player is the best option for Willian. 

He's a strong shout to start the cup final. Been good since the Spurs game.

Is there any chance Willian would play as a right wingback?

Well, in general Willian is a better player but Pedro is a better attacker, scores more so he fits more into our recent system.

Not stating anything revolutionary but he's become a great player before our very eyes. He's massively improved so much in the last two seasons. The contrast beween the player he was then and now is obvious. He is now one of the best wingers in the Premier league and in my opinion, one of the best right wingers in Europe. Willy is fantastic and I like his personality as well.

One of the best right wingers in Europe when he was not even first choice most of the season?

It's my opinion. He was our stand out player the season before and maybe the guy ahead of him is one of the best right wingers in Europe. Who are the stand right wingers in Europe in the world these days? Name them and the list isn't that extensive to exclude Pedro and Willian.

Bale?

Messi?

Both play in the right.

Wingers are hard to distinguish which side, as most top ones play effectively on either side. So I will include many players who often play more on the left, but are still better than Willian on the right.

Di Maria, James, Mertens, Robben, Bale, Douglas Costa, Sanchez, muller, hazard and griezmann and KDB and Neymar when they play there. Does Messi count?

One could argue that Dembele and Sane are close or on the same level. I rate Mahrez higher. think Pedro is much better than him, which is why he's behind him on the pecking order.

That's 17 in my opinion and I could have missed some. Even without the ones that are close, it's still over 10. That's not near one of the best to me
