Chelsea supporting punters enjoying a game of pool here in the Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Standard with interest, as the publication suggests that the Blues are set begin talks with Willian to secure him on a new £100,000-a-week deal.
The talented attacking midfielder has been one of the highlights in what has been an abysmal season for Jose Mourinho and his men, and this news has certainly put a smile on the faces of all the Chelsea fans here in the Tavern.
