Willian declined an offer to play in the MLS with Inter Miami

The new Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami made a bid in January during the winter transfer market to sign Chelsea forward Willian. According to the Telegraph, David Beckham’s team made a huge offer for the 31-year-old, who will become a free agent this summer as his contract with Chelsea ends.

Inter Miami offering three-year, $100,000-a-week deal

The Telegraph claims that Inter Miami offered Willian a three-year contract to play in the MLS. This is the timespan he wanted to renew with Chelsea for, but the team from London has only offered him 24 more months.

On top of a three-year contract, Inter Miami was willing to pay the Brazilian $100,000 a week to play in Major League Soccer. It was Willian who said during an interview that he would like to play in the MLS when the time was right, because he wants to remain in Europe one more year.

Tottenham eyeing Willian swoop

Since he wants to play a couple more years in Europe and his time at Chelsea is done this summer, several teams want to sign Willian on a free transfer. Tottenham is one of them, with former Blues boss José Mourinho keen to bring the Brazilian on board for the next campaign.
