'I was at Spurs training ground': Willian reveals how he ditched Tottenham at the last minute to join Chelsea

Willian has shared his experience of signing for Chelsea and revealed the twists and turns in the story that brought him to Stamford Bridge.

“I was in London for two weeks, waiting, waiting for Tottenham to decide. Because they were in a situation where Gareth Bale was in the process of leaving them to join Real Madrid.

“Liverpool were also interested. I wasn’t sure about Chelsea. They’d shown interest but it wasn’t so firm at first.

“(They) came on the day I was going to sign the contract with Spurs. I was at Tottenham’s training ground to finalise the deal when the call came. My agent said to me; ‘Chelsea just called me and they want you’.

“I said; ‘OK, I want to go there!’. Then I left the training ground and went back to the hotel. It was a difficult situation because I’d agreed more or less to join Spurs. But in my mind was only Chelsea.

“Once the deal between Anzhi and Chelsea was agreed, I only wanted to go there. It was the best decision of my career.”

This summer Willian made his way back to London again, but this time he's playing for Fulham.
