Some Tottenham Hotspur fans are fuming at an article from The Telegraph regarding a transfer link for Chelsea’s ‘snake’ Willian.
Spurs fans will remember that they were linked with the Brazilian at the same time as Chelsea, but Willian chose to move to the west London club instead from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala. Since then, the winger has made 329 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, scoring 59 goals and providing a further 59 assists according to Transfermarkt.
The 31-year old will be out of contract in the summer if he does not sign a new deal with Chelsea, which means that London rivals Spurs could potentially sweep him up for free.
A tweet posted by Hotspur Related relayed that information from The Telegraph and it brought some mixed reactions, but these Spurs fans were fuming at the suggestion that the north London club were thinking about signing him, with one fan calling him a ‘snake’ and another even claiming that the club are ‘only 7 or 8 years too late’ in their pursuit of the attacker:
