Jose Mourinho has all but confirmed that Brazilian striker Willian will be joining Chelsea, rather than Tottenham Hotspur, from Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala at his regular press conference on Friday.
It’s a massively frustrating situation for Tottenham, who had all but thought they had got their man – however as is the case in modern day football, agents have a massive influence on deals.
Mourinho told a press conference on Friday about the possibility of signing Brazilian forward Willian: “I don’t like to speak before… (laughter) before time, because football can betray you and sometimes this in a problem when we speak about names and transfers and so on, because sometimes it looks like it is, but it isn’t. But I know what the player wants, so at this moment we cannot hide, that is a possibility.”
