The Brazilian spoke on the subject of his new deal after the defeat to Bayern Munich last week, telling Esporte Interativo: ‘Chelsea offered me two years, and they are not going to change what they offered.
‘I said I wanted three more years. The situation is difficult because of this, I really don’t know if it will be possible.
‘My goal is to continue working and focus on this remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning the games for the remainder of the season.’
Despite his long-term future at Stamford Bridge being up in the air, the 31-year-old continues to play an integral part in Frank Lampard’s squad this season.
He has made 36 appearances in all competitions and scored the opening goal in the Blues’ 2-0 win against Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth-round on Tuesday night.

He has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and last season’s Europa League.
