Willian’s Mouthwatering Contract Details With Arsenal Has Emerged

There are now fresh details about how much Willian will earn when he completes his free transfer to Arsenal.

Willian will be joinning Mikel Arteta's Gunners this weekend after his contract with Chelsea expired.

It has been widely reported that the Brazilian winger will sign a three-year, £150,000-per-week deal with an option of a fourth year.

Willian is also set to receive a handsome signing-on fee given the fact the Gunners won't have to pay a transfer fee.

And when the signing-on fee is taken into account, along with loyalty payments and other bonuses, Willian’s deal will be worth a staggering £220,000 per week, according to the Daily Mail.

But the whopping sums involved could cause some consternation given Arsenal's announcement last week of plans to make 55 members of staff redundant.

The 32-year-old could cash in to the tune of £35m if he sees out his Arsenal contract – while some backroom and scouting staff are losing their livelihoods.
