Chelsea To Break Club Policy In Order To Keep Star?

Premier League outfit Chelsea are reportedly looking at breaking their own policy in order to try and keep one their stars at Stamford Bridge.

Another Chelsea Star Linked With Real Madrid

According to Daily Mirror, the Blues are rumoured to be close to offering Brazil international Willian a new two-year deal to try and ward off bids from Manchester United and FC Barcelona.

The report suggests that the English outfit has a policy in place that does not allow a player who is 30-years or older to get more than a one-year extension at the club.

Chelsea apparently brought this rule to promote high energy football and feel it is easier to cut ties with a player should he not meet their requirements anymore.

Willian, who celebrated his 30th Birthday on the 9th August,  now has fallen into this policy’s threshold has less than two years remaining on his current deal, which sees him reportedly earning around £120 000 (R2.26 million) a week.

A new deal will mean the forward will get a pay rise, but there is no word on how much he will walk away with should he put pen to paper.
