Willian’s arrival in Brazil to join Corinthians is nearing as the Brazilian club already has a contract in place for the 33-year-old.
According to TNT Sports Brazil, once the termination of his contract with Arsenal is complete, Willian will be on his way to South America, where he will sign a two-year contract with Corinthians.
Willian is the fourth reinforcement to arrive at Corinthians, where he made his debut for Corinthians in 2006. The 33-year-old came from the club’s youth academy, where he remained until 2007 when he moved to Shakhtar Donetsk.
In Ukraine, Willian made 227 appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk, scoring 37 goals and recording 63 assists. He would then move to Chelsea, as the Brazil international’s best years came, where he made 339 appearances for The Blues, where he scored 63 goals and registered 62 assists.
The winger left for Arsenal, where he’s had difficulty fitting in, only scoring one goal in 37 appearances, which is why both parties are looking to part ways.
