“Willian was convinced by Arteta’s project”

Willian was convinced to make a move to Arsenal due to how Manager Mikel Arteta presented his project; according to his agent Kia Joorabchian.

Contract discussions between Chelsea and Willian failed due to disagreement on the length of the contract offered by Chelsea.

Willian wanted a three-year-contract while Chelsea offered him a two year deal which prompted the Brazilian to make a move across London to sign for rivals Arsenal on August 14.

“With Willian, there’s no secret he wanted a three-year contract, but the Mikel Arteta project was just incredible,” 


“He was very much wooed by Mikel and [technical director] Edu, and what Mikel presented to him and the way he wants to play football, the way he wants to continue and the success he wants to bring to Arsenal, made the difference.


“That’s what he said and that’s exactly what it was.”
