Chelsea Break Tottenham’s Hearts By Signing Willian Subject to Work Permit
Chelsea have officially confirmed that they’ve agreed personal terms with Brazilian midfielder Willian, and that the deal is done. All that remains is for Willian to be granted a work permit. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Stamford Bridge club stole Willian away from Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday after the Anzhi footballer had agreed personal terms and completed a medical. According to The Guardian newspaper, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich phoned the owner of Anzhi Makhachkala to convince the club not to sell the player to Tottenham.
