Chelsea winger Willian has rejected an enormous deal from David Beckham's Inter Miami. The Brazilian still hasn't committed to Chelsea and will be a Free-Agent at the end of the Premier League season.
Brazilian winger Willian has rejected a lucrative three-year deal with Inter Miami in the MLS and wants to stay in Europe.
The David Beckham-owned Inter Miami were ready to give Willian an insane lucrative contract to become one of their 'Designated Players', which means his salary wouldn't account to Inter Miami's salary cap. The salary cap is an American sports format which is made to create parity through their leagues.
According to the papers, Willian has turned down a move to the US as he wants play for a club in the Champions League.- BBC Sport (@BBCSport) July 13, 2020

Willian's deal at Stamford Bridge is almost up with the two parties, so far, unable to agree on an extension. The 31-year-old was keen to sign a new three-deal deal to remain in west London, but Chelsea were not willing to offer more than two.
The Chelsea winger said recently:
"I want to finish the season well if I go, or maybe I can stay...I don't know but what I want now is to play well and for Chelsea to finish in the top four."
"I'm feeling good. We had one month to prepare well with a lot of fitness training so all the players feel good to play and we showed that on the pitch...We have to keep going. We know teams that come from behind want to win to go in the top four as well so we have to do our job."
What do you think of Willian's future after this season?
