Chelsea's boss Jose Mourinho wants World Cup midfielder Paulinho, but it won't be as easy as he thinks to gazump Tottenham for the second time in one year.
The Blues' £32 million late bid left Willian having two medicals last summer, one in north London and another at Stamford Bridge where he finally joined Chelsea.
Mourinho has now launched a stunning bid for the Tottenham's midfielder to make another Brazilian leaving White Hard Lane, report the MailOnline.
But the midfielder, Paulinho, has not shown signs of unhappiness in north London, and it is worth to remember what Spurs' chairman Daniel Levy said after selling Dimitar Berbatov to rivals Manchester United in 2008.
Levy insisted that he won't let a top player goes to any tittle contenders clubs in the Barclays Premier League. The proof came when Chelsea failed to secure Luka Modric's services three years back.
The same scenario happened with word's most expensive player Gareth Bale who joined Real Madrid last summer instead of Manchester United who had prepared a £100million bid.
It would be very surprising if the Brazilian played under Mourinho next season as Paulinho scored seven goals, assisted two in 35 appearances for Spurs with his 84 per cent passing accuracy.
