Willian has rejected a contract from David Beckham’s Inter Miami side according to The Telegraph.
The Brazilian winger’s current deal at Chelsea expires at the end of the current season and the MLS’ newest side have reportedly made him a huge offer.
The article suggests that Willian was approached by the side co-owned by Beckham with a three-year contract offer but turned it down.

That has left the situation wide open with Spurs ready to offer a massive contract to the 31-year-old.
It is illustrative of how highly Frank Lampard regards Willian that the Brazilian has started in all five of Chelsea’s matches since football restarted.
The 31-year-old winger has been the club’s most productive attacking player since the resumption, with four goals — all from set pieces — and an assist. It takes his tally for the season to 11, behind only Tammy Abraham, while only captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount have started more games.
So, with all that in mind, it is unfathomable that Willian will leave Stamford Bridge in three weeks. Talks over an extension are at a standstill.

Three weeks is a long time in football, of course. More performances like those during Project Restart and who knows, Chelsea may yet return to the table.
The view from inside Stamford Bridge is they are willing to offer him a two-year extension. Willian, given his clear importance to Lampard, believes he is worth an extra 12 months. On the evidence of his recent performances, a three-year contract doesn’t feel like he’s asking for the Earth.
No wonder London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both moving themselves into position to strike.
