Chelsea Sign Willian

Willian has revealed the lure of working under Jose Mourinho tempted him to ditch a move to Tottenham and join Chelsea.

The 25-year-old completed a £30million switch to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, signing a five year deal worth around £100,000-a-week.

Willian moves after he snubbed a transfer to Tottenham at the minute, despite having a medical with the club, and he says the lure of working with Mourinho made up his mind.

“I’m very happy to be here, it’s been a dream of mine to come and play here,” said Willian.

“Chelsea are one of the best clubs in the world, and now I’m going to play for one of the best managers in the world, so I’m very happy and looking forward to it.”

The 25-year-old Brazil international will add competition to the plethora of midfield talent at Chelsea, with Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle, Oscar, Kevin De Bruyne and Victor Moses all battling for places.

Willian will wear the number 22 shirt at Stamford Bridge.
