Chelsea star Willian is baptised in River Jordan as he ponders new deal
THIS is the moment Willian is baptised in the River Jordan as he ponders a new Chelsea contract.
The Brazilian is on holiday in Israel and posted snaps of the event to his popular Instagram account.
Willian wrote the caption: “Joy in reaffirming my baptism, in a place that I consider extremely important. Jordan river!”
Former Chelsea teammate Diego Costa responded to the snaps with a smiley emoji.
While Spurs rival Lucas Moura replied: “Glory to God! How wonderful, my brother. I’ll still know this place.”
Willian has plenty to smile about as he prepares to extend his Stamford Bridge stay.
The 30-year-old is out of contract in 2020.
But the Blues are ready to hand him a deal until 2021 after being hit with a transfer ban.
They do not want to risk the possibility of losing Willian for nothing if they are unable to sign players next summer.
And although he would prefer a three-year contract, Willian is ready to commit his future to the Blues as they prepare to lose Maurizio Sarri .
