Willian terminates Arsenal contract ahead of Corinthians move

Brazilian international, Willian, has terminated his contract with Arsenal ahead of his free transfer to Corinthians.

The former Chelsea star is leaving the Premier League side with two-years left on his contract, the club said.

The 33-year-old who earned £240,000-a-week at the Emirates is set to take a 70 per cent pay cut to return to his former club.

Willian is expected to fly to Brazil on Tuesday night in order to complete his move to Corinthians.

A statement from the north Lond club read, "Arsenal have reached a mutual agreement with Willian to terminate his contract effective from today.

"The Brazil international joined us from Chelsea last August and made 38 appearances during the 2020/21 campaign.

"He had two more years to run on his contract but following positive and constructive recent discussions with him and his team, he will be leaving for a new opportunity with Corinthians in Brazil, where he began his career.

"Everyone at Arsenal wishes Willian and his family well for the future."
