Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United manager Redknapp claimed Willian was asking for a lot of money to sign a new contract with Chelsea before his move to Arsenal.

Redknapp said of Willian on Sky Sports News (1:43 pm, Feb 13, 2021): “Willian has been a disappointment, hasn’t he? I bet it’s mega-money. I know he was asking Chelsea for crazy money to stay, so he must have gotten it to go to Arsenal. “
