How much will Valian earn from a lucrative arms transfer?

Arsenal will soon unveil Brazilian winger Willian as a new signing following his release from Chelsea earlier this month and he will be at the Emirates Stadium for around £35m over the next few years thanks to a surprisingly lucrative contract. can earn

Willian has just turned 32 and one of the problems that led to his exit from Chelsea is that he wanted a longer contract and the extra security the club was willing to offer to go with it.

Arsenal have offered the player a longer deal which will keep Willan handsomely rewarded until June 2023 when he will be around 35. This is despite the Gunners struggling financially during the coronavirus crisis, with current players agreeing to pay cuts and proposals to sack 55 non-playing staff. .

The club justified the significant job losses – around 10% of their total workforce – by explaining that cutting costs in running the business would allow them to invest in the team.

With Willian’s impending arrival also on the cards, with a new deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, that’s exactly what they appear to be doing.

The Daily Mail writes that although Willian will earn less than his basic salary at Chelsea, signing-on fees, loyalty payments and various other bonuses will push him up to £220,000-a-week.

That works out to around £11.4m per season if he takes full advantage of his terms and no less than £35m over the length of the deal. It also comes with a fourth year option. This, of course, is nothing against Willian for accepting the offer of arms.

Given that Willian’s deal was agreed some time ago and his release from Chelsea came a week before their Champions League season ended, the Mail claim that ‘insiders’ believe that Arsenal have has delayed the unveiling as it will currently be a The Evil Eye

However, the report states that the club has denied the matter.

Even after leaving Chelsea, Willian was always considered likely to stay in London as he loves the city and still holds British citizenship. He was briefly linked with Tottenham as a result of his close relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

Speaking to The Players’ Tribune earlier this year, Willian said, “If you ask my wife if she wants to leave London, she would say no. My daughters feel the same way.

“Of course, Brazil is Brazil, right? It’s our home, our culture. We always love it when we go there on vacation and see family and friends. But London is my second home.

“Actually, I recently passed the British citizenship test. Man, it was hard. As it turns out, I failed my first two attempts, but passed on the third attempt. I’m a British citizen now! So London is where I want to live. It’s where my family is, my church. I want my daughters to grow up here.
