Chelsea already have a star studded squad but Jose Mourinho is still looking for one more major signing before the end of transfer window. The pursuit of Wayne Rooney is not really proving to be fruitful, as United are not interested in selling him to one of their rivals.
However, if they do lose out on Rooney, it is expected that Blues will still sign someone to further reinforce their attacking lineup.
The latest reports suggest that Chelsea are to hijack Tottenham’s move for Brazilian international Willian and the playmaker may as well be Rooney’s alternative.
BBC reported that former Shakhtar star had his medical at Spurs but is yet to sign for them. Meanwhile Chelsea are planning to jump in with a bid to lure the talented midfielder.
Jose Mourinho already has many attacking midfielders available in his squad but well he wants more options to amplify the chances of winning the premier league crown.
Willian scored twice in the Champions League against Roberto Di Matteo’s Chelsea last season and may be attracted by the idea of playing in the competition with the Blues as Spurs will only play in Europa League this season.
However, with the World Cup coming up next year, and with that much competition, Willian is by no means guaranteed more playing time at Chelsea than he can expect at Tottenham. We shall see how the saga unfolds.
