Rumours surrounding Willian the Brazilian’s future are gathering pace with the winger failing to turn up for training at Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainian Premier League returns to action in March after a long winter break but will Willian be taking his place in the squad?
The 24 year old rang Shakhtar’s coach Mircea Lucescu to tell him of his decision to stay away and the boss was clearly unhappy at the news.
“The president decided to do everything possible to sign a player of Willian’s level, who already has experience of playing at a high standard. We look forward to having Willian again and I would like him to come back and behave as he did before – as a professional and decent man.”
Lucescu continued to state his hope that the matter could be resolved but he finished by hinting that a January sale could take place.
“With or without Willian, Shakhtar will move on,” he added.
Spurs are the names mentioned by most sources this morning but is it likely to be a reality considering the likely fee and wages? Meanwhile Chelsea, who missed out on Taison this month might just be a logical destination should Willian finally depart.

  1. Willian is now in Abu Dhabi to join up with Shakhtar so don’t ready to0 much in to the reports. See his instagram account for pics – willianborges88 – he would be a much needed signing for Spurs after they couldn’t unpick the 6 man midfield vs QPR on Saturday and Spurs have been needing cover on the wings for a while.

  2. Willian is perfect 4-2-3-1 style they play in wing ,CF ,ST ,CAM POSITIONS AND WE NEED ANOTHER—–1.CAPOUE (partner of cdm with sandro) / 2.MOUNTINHO (COMBINATION OF ATTAK AND DEFENCE) / 3. WILLIAN / 4.HOLTBY (LAND IN JANUARY WE NEED HIM) / 5. NANI OR ZAHA OR PERISIC OR WALLCOT OR J.FARFAN OR J.NAVAS (PATNER OF ATTAK WITH LENNON) / 6. SOLDADO OR DAMIAO OR DOUMBIA OR NIGRADO——AND–OUT-ROSE / JENAS / BENTLAY / HUDDLESTONE / LIVERMOER——–AND- T.CAROLL & TOWNSED & SIGURDSSON & FALQUE ON LOAN

  3. Would be great to get him. Still, he’ll probably go the chavs who’ll buy him and put him on the bench just to stop us improving

  4. It will be Chelsea: willing to pay every price, higher wages, CL qualification every year,… I can only see us signing him (and a top drawer striker) if we sell Bale for big money. We are Spurs, a team with financial discipline that will be building a new stadium. The best that can happen within our constraints is Sneijder on loan and Negredo or another striker for not more than 15 million.

  5. chelsea wont buy him they are overloaded with attacking midfielders already mata hazard moses oscar marin chelsea only bid for willian when avb was in charge now that he is at spurs they are not in for him – but i cant see spurs buying him either to be honest
