Just a day after passing his Tottenham medical Anzhi Makachkala ace Willian is reported to been in 'advanced talks' with Chelsea according to Sky Sports.
It follows news after Spurs had a record breaking fee of £30 million agreed with the Russian club but Willian was considering his options over whether to finalize the deal to see him play under Andre Villas Boas.
SkyBet recently suspended betting on Willian's next move however bets have reopened with Tottenham with odds of 6/1 whilst their London rivals chelsea 1/4 to sign him.
Spurs have had a great summer transfer window which has seen the North London club not only break their transfer record not once but twice. It was also reported that Spurs were going to break their transfer record for a third time yet a late hijack from Chelsea may end Spurs' chances of landing the Brazilian playmaker that Spurs tried to sign in the last two windows.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho publicly stated that his club had had two bids rejected for Manchester United Striker Wayne Rooney and that club may make an improved offer after their encounter with the Manchester club on Monday. The manager went on to say that the club 'do have a plan B and a Plan C'.
This will come as a shocking blow to Spurs fans as the £30 million transfer for Willian seemed a formality, the crushing blow is further enhanced through Gareth Bale being reported as being a step closer to a move for Real Madrid and that negations are in an advanced stage.
Despite being set to losing out to Chelsea on the Brazilian starlet Spurs are still being heavily linked to the 'Argentinian Cristiano Ronaldo' Erik Lamela who managed to net 15 goals for AS Roma last season.
Although Willian is now linked to a move to Chelsea this summers's acquisitions can still keep Spurs fans excited to what their team can achieve this season.
