Real Madrid have declined the chance to sign Chelsea winger Willian because of the Brazilian’s wage demands.

The 31-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is expected to leave Stamford Bridge after seven years at the club.

Willian had been keen to stay in west London but his representatives were unhappy with the length of Chelsea’s offer and as it stands he’s set to depart.

The Brazilian’s representatives have since offered the winger to a host of European giants and Real Madrid are the latest to be given the chance to sign Willian, according to the Mirror.

Zinedine Zidane is an admirer of the former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder but the club have turned down the opportunity to sign Willian.

The La Liga giants could sign Willian for free but they’re unwilling to give him the three-year deal he craves, nevermind matching his £120,000-a-week wage demands.

Spurs and Arsenal have both been linked with Willian as Premier League clubs seek bargains this summer to combat the financial effect of the pandemic.

However, Kia Joorabchian, Willian’s representative, says it’s ‘disrespectful’ to speak about interest from other clubs.

‘At the moment, he’s a Chelsea player. He has a contract with Chelsea until the season is over, so I think it is disrespectful to talk about him moving to other clubs,’ he said.

‘We have not spoken to Tottenham, or any other club, at the moment.’
