Kia Joorabchian claims Willian has not yet made a final decision over his future following interest from Arsenal and says the winger will finalise his plans after Chelsea’s FA Cup final this weekend.

The 31-year-old is out of contract this summer and Chelsea have so far failed to reach an agreement over a new deal.

Willian is demanding a three-year contract but Chelsea have only been willing to offer him a deal which covers the next two seasons.

Arsenal have reportedly offered Willian a contract worth £250,000 a week but Joorabchian has revealed that the Brazil international has four options on the table.

On Monday, reports claimed that Chelsea had make a breakthrough in negotiations with Willian.

But Joorabchian insists the midfielder’s future will not be resolved until after Chelsea’s FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday.

‘I don’t think he’s done a U-turn or any kind of turn really,’ Joorabchian told talkSPORT.

‘He’s always been very much under the same mode.

‘We have two very big offers, one from the MLS. And the insistence the MLS is that he has to make the decision and come over on July 1.

‘And he’s always been under the same mode, he’s wanted to finish the season off at Chelsea, and then the day after the season has finished he will make his decision.

‘He has two concrete offers from Premier League teams on the table.

‘He has an MLS offer on the table, which is a very big offer as well. And he he’s got two other offers from Europe.

‘So Willian is in a great position. He has four offers on the table. He will make his decision after the FA Cup final.

‘Physically he’s in great condition and he’s always kept himself at a very high level.

‘He’s playing at the top of his game with Chelsea. He’s always going to give you a straight eight to 10 out of 10, every game he plays he’s going to give you everything.

‘He’s never had any, touch wood and I don’t want to jinx it, injury issues so there’s no reason why he can’t play for another four or five years if he wants to.’
