Chelsea In Advanced Talks To Hijack Spurs £30m Willian Deal

Chelsea are in advanced talks to hijack Tottenham Hotspur’s £30million move for Anzhi Makachkala’s Brazilian attacker Willian, according to Sky Sports News.

With the summer transfer window in full swing, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Chelsea are close to hijacking Spurs Willian deal.

Willian: In his Shakhtar days

Chelsea are in advanced talks with Anzhi Makachkala to try and hijack Tottenham’s £30m move for attacker Willian just days after Spurs pulled the same stunt on Liverpool, according to Sky Sports News.

Willian was made available for transfer by the Russian outfit just months after making a £32m move from Shakhtar Donetsk after the clubs owner pulled the plug on his lavish investment, insisting they slashed their wage bill 50%.

The Brazilian forward was quickly linked with a switch to Liverpool before Tottenham hijacked their move and the player looked set for a move to north London after passing a medical on Wednesday afternoon, and reports claimed he was expected to sign a five-year contract and complete a £30m move on Thursday.

However, it seems Chelsea have made a late approach to hijack that deal with Sky Sports claiming the Blues are now in advanced talks with Anzhi to take the 25-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri claims that according to Sky Italia, Willian was at Tottenham’s HQ when news of Chelsea €37m bid came in.

Truly astonishing if true and it will be a killer blow to Andre Villas-Boas’ side if they were to lose out after going so far down the line with their deal.  However, if Chelsea manage to pull it off, it will be a major coup for Jose Mourinho but may put the future of Juan Mata in doubt as the club will be packed with attacking midfielders.

Let’s see how this develops over the coming hours….

    I’ve been told by a very reliable source working at Tottenham that “Bale has reconsidered and intends to stay at Tottenham and that’s why Spurs have pulled out of the Willian transfer.” Also, “Baldini is in Madrid to tie up the Coentrao signing.”

        I just wanted to see how many of the media reported my made up story. They are Sheep after all. Didn’t realise the story about Bale shirts on dirty madrids website would come out 5 mins after. I do wonder if Bale would have been allowed to leave because Tottenham thought they had Willian as a replacement though. Gutted, I thought Bale was different from the average footballer.

    Andrew poor excuse for missing out on William. Spurs didn’t pull out a club that can offer more than fighting for fourth have come in for him , I hope they get him as Karma is a bitch Spurs done it to Liverpool.

    Are you having a laugh? Bale left last May, as soon his agent spoke on the radio! If Willian goes to Chelsea, particularly in this way, i would say we have dodged a bullet! Maybe we should see if we can get mata on the cheap? (30 mill). I would ask ur relaible source to find out who shot Kennedy!

      William had been a Chelsea since last year’s C.L, that’s where he wants to be, so you guys should let him be, the market is still open, go now before is late. AVB developed the interest on William from Chelsea, so he knows very well that will wants to play C.L, and Spurs will have to wait till May next year to confirm if they will be playing at C.L, Mors Chelsea is a better NAME. we all know. UP CHELSEA

    Spurs fan. Fair play if Chelsea get him. But coming into a World Cup I know I would rather play football rather than watch it from a bench. How many midfield players do hey want. Or is it a ploy to stop spurs getting stronger. Hazard, Oscar, Ramirez, schrulle, De Bruyne, mata. Good luck forcing that lot out .

    Yes, all managers and clubs re in the transfer market to do business. Chelsea or Jose willing to sign Willian is not a bad idear under mining ABV had been before any other persons. The question is has he be signed? If no, anybody can sign him whether medical or not. In the case of Hazard, wenger was the first person to priced Eden but other clubs came in the business before he later signed for the blues. Willian is a good player and he will be a good signing for Chelsea.

    Whilst I really couldn’t care less where he ends up, it would be amusing to see Spurs have a dose of their own medecine regarding poaching other teams transfer targets. As for Bale staying – GET REAL – where do you think all the money for all the signings this Summer has come from, the Lottery?
