Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Brazilian football star Willian who plays for Chelsea has reportedly agreed deal to join former manager Jose Mourinho at Premier League side Tottenham.
The current contract Willian has with Chelsea will be coming to an end this summer and there has been no fruitful discussion for the possibility of him extending his stay.
Willian who has been playing for Chelsea for the past seven years wants three-year deal, but the Stamford Bridge landlords are not ready to change their policy on the contract they offer players above 30 years.
According to the report on UK Mirror, Willian's family want to remain in London and they see their breadwinner joining Spurs as the best option they've got.
It was Jose Mourinho who signed Willian for Chelsea in 2013 during his second spell with the Blues and they have been keeping touch since the Portuguese left Stamford Bridge.
BeIN Sports presenter Richard Keys reported that the deal is already agreed and Willian will be following Mourinho to the Blues' bitter rivals.
