Chelsea’s Willian wants Tottenham transfer because of Jose Mourinho says Paul Robinson

Chelsea star Willian wants to move to Tottenham because of his close relationship with Jose Mourinho.

That is the verdict from former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who reckons that the Brazil international will not come cheap.

Willian will see his contract at the Blues expire at the end of June and it appears that no renewal is on the way.

Frank Lampard is a big fan of the forward but negotiations have broken down.

The 31-year-old is demanding a three-year contract but the club are only willing to offer him two.

Willian turns 32 in August and Chelsea would rather have young blood over an ageing winger.

He is rumoured to favour staying in the Premier League, with London his preference as well.

Arsenal has been touted as a destination but Tottenham could be more likely, due to his bond with club manager Mourinho.

“A player that has a great relationship with Mourinho. If the player wants to stay in London and Tottenham was an option for him, you would imagine that would be his first choice.

“Loyalties towards Chelsea would have to be put to one side.

Meanwhile, Willian has insisted he would not have qualms over joining Chelsea’s rivals.

“It really is a hard decision,” he told Brazilian YouTube channel Desimpedidos. “I identified myself a lot at Chelsea, I have a lot of love for everyone at the club, and the fans.
