WILLIAN has been offered a huge signing-on fee to join Tottenham.
That’s the claim from Football Insider as the Brazil midfielder, 32 next month, eyes a free transfer from Chelsea this summer.
Tottenham chief Jose Mourinho is favourite to land a player he bossed at Stamford Bridge, despite Arsenal reportedly being ready to pay Willian £250,000 a week.
Spurs are reportedly dangling a huge contract in front of the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk and Anzhi Makhachkala star.
And Willian admitted talks over a new Chelsea deal have in effect ended.
He told Expediente Futebol: “I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years.
“I asked for three and it ended there.
“We didn’t talk anymore. We didn’t negotiate anymore.”
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with Willian over the summer.
And certainly his post-lockdown form suggests he is still one of the Premier League’s most effective performers, showing the type of athleticism and authority that Mourinho loves.
Willian has notched four goals and two assists in his five games since the Prem resumed last month after the coronavirus crisis eased.
