Willian tells Spurs fans: Only one option when Chelsea came knocking

Willian admits Tottenham had little chance of landing him after Chelsea made their interest know.

Anzhi Makhachkala sold Willian to Chelsea for a fee thought to be £25.5m at the end of last month.

On the move to Stamford Bridge, Willian said: "Things just happened. Chelsea came with an offer and everyone knows that I wanted to play for the club since I was at Shakhtar.

"It shook me but I didn't think twice. As both presidents (Suleyman Kerimov and Roman Abramovich) are friends, that helped too. It was a very easy negotiation.

"The Brazilians called me, especially David Luiz, who told me to come quickly. I was very happy to have them around and they will certainly help me a lot.

"I wanted to play at Chelsea, even more so now with Jose Mourinho, who is the best at what he does.

"When I had a day off, I came to watch the club's games, so I am more than happy for having made this transfer become true."
