Former Arsenal and Chelsea star Willian has left Corinthians after tearing up his contract.
And the Brazil winger is reportedly now in talks to join newly-promoted Fulham.
Willian returned to youth club Corinthians last summer after leaving Arsenal just a year into a three-year deal.
But the 34-year-old hasn’t scored a single goal in nine league games for his new side.
And Willian couldn’t prevail as Corinthians were knocked out of the Copa Libertadores 3-0 by rivals Flamengo on Wednesday.
Despite having one year left on his contract, Willian has now agreed to terminate his contract.
He explained: “I give up everything I have to get.
“I know my performance wasn’t what I expected, but I’ve never been a player who scored 20 or 30 goals a season.”
Willian is now jetting back to live in London with his family.
And Goal claim the playmaker could now serve a third spell in the English capital with Fulham.

Willian is believed to have started talks with Marco Silva’s side before his contract at Corinthians was ripped up.
Fulham have already opted for several exciting attackers, including Manor Solomon and compatriot Andreas Pereira.
And Willian could now be ready to join the Cottagers on a one-year deal to avoid another immediate relegation to the Championship.
Despite his flopping season at Arsenal, Willian is best remembered by Premier League fans for his time at Chelsea.
He spent seven seasons at Stamford Bridge, scoring 63 goals in 339 games.
Willian won numerous trophies including an FA Cup, Europa League and two titles.
He is also a Copa America winner and helped Brazil to the 2019 cup after capturing 70 caps for his country.
