In what looks like a football drama or an action packed football movie. Chelsea FC of England had finally completed a move for Anzhi’s Willian.
Tottenham had almost completed a move for the Brazillian after a fee was agreed and the player underwent a medical. But tables turn and the deal changed just as Roman Abrahamovich’s army launched an improved bid of £31.7 million for the player with a better weekly allowance and the Anzhi winger had no choice than to accept a move to Chelsea.
Willian Borges Da Silva was an enemy in last year’s Champions league when he featured in the group stages for his former club Shaktar Donesk of Ukraine. He has however become a favourite ever since.
An official statement has been issued on Chelsea’s website and the transfer is now subject to a work permit hearing on Wednesday.
Willian is Chelsea’s third summer signing after Andre Schurrle and Van ginkel while Chelsea still awaits a move for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.
