Metro have Tottenham fans completely fuming here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Chelsea are the ones who have finally landed Willian.
The Anzhi Makhachkala player has been one of the most wanted talents of the summer and now it seems that both Liverpool and Spurs have missed out on the two cap Brazilian winger.
Whilst Brendan Rodgers will not be as dismayed to lose out, Andre Villas-Boas certainly is.
Spurs had even seen Willian pass a medical, yet interest from the Blues Chelsea at the last minute managed to turn the player’s head.
Now it seems that Jose Mourinho has landed his plan B, and his plan C may be set to follow.
All of this has placed further doubt on the future of Juan Mata, yet as we were discussing yesterday, Jose Mourinho is determined to keep the player at Stamford Bridge.
Another player Mourinho is determined to land this summer is Wayne Rooney and another bid will be made for the Manchester United player, which as one of our punters quips, will probably be rejected.
Whilst Spurs will still allow Gareth Bale to make his dream move to Real Madrid, they will now turn all their attentions to Roma’s Erik Lamela and try to bring in a final couple of players this summer that may also include Vlad Chiriches.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are waiting on the work permit hearing for Willian before they can officially unveil him as one of their players.
Do Chelsea even need Willian? Is this simply Chelsea putting Tottenham in their place Let us know your thoughts below.
