Advised to reject Spurs for a bigger club (CFC)

Advised to reject Spurs for a bigger club (CFC)

I was going through various news online and a certain headline popped up and I read an article about the Brazilian nightmare called Willian da Silva popularly known only as Willian who plies his trade in the Ukraine and for Shakhter who have recently being a huge thorn in our flesh (European Champions)

Apparently the article is a come and get me plea from Willian to Chelsea, stating in the article from an interview that his work is done in the Ukraine after winning four domestic titles and one Europa Cup, he now sets his eyes on claiming a spot in the Selecao come 2014 and he believes playing for a top club would earn him a spot.

Willian in his own words said and I quote 'Chelsea and Spurs made offers for me and I will like to play in the EPL, I don't know why the board won't let me go as Chelsea submitted a £16.8m offer for me in January, its not about the money I just want to play with a big club."

His team mate, who is a former player for Arsenal, Eduardo told him that he'll thrive in England and that there are only three clubs that is big enough for him and they are Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Phew! I didn't see Spurs in that trio and it was a warm feeling reading that aspect of showering encomiums to us and our other big rivals in the article, you'll wonder how many players feel we are one of the biggest clubs in the world and would prefer us than Spurs?

However, the reason I am writing this article apart from my initial points is that, do we really need Willian in the summer?

Would he have a place in our starting XI?

As I am sure he is a player that would demand first team action wherever he is headed to, But personally with the loads of talents we have on loan KDB, McEachran and the already existing attacking midfielders we have at Chelsea, I don't think we'll need him, but off course I said the same thing about not needing Oscar, I couldn't be more wrong.

So Vital Chelsea fans, what is your sincere opinion about this? Should we go for this fantastic Brazilian for his reported fee of £25m or leave him for the Spuds who really would benefit from his talents?

One thing is sure about Willian, he'll be a blessing to the club and league he finds himself in next summer and if we are to go for him, I won't mind striking the rod while it`s hot and pay for him by January and let him join us by summer.

What do you think guys?

The difficulty is how we'd fit him into our squad ensuring enough game time. His position is already overcrowded IMHO, especially with KdB set to return

no he is not that good enough....we have better player in our squad than him...if he wanna sign then there are plently better player than him...there is nothing special about big nooooooo...let him go to spuds...
09/11/2012 16:25:00
Ermmmmm. Where is Willian going to play?
09/11/2012 16:32:00
Bizarre blue, shlok27,kakufrank it beats my imagination and @shlok27 did iu just say willian aint good enough? Well I don't know about a player being good, but the player is damn tricky and got a footballing brain on his head.
09/11/2012 16:44:00
your like a year late. hazard/oscar/piazon/kdb/marin/moses all occupy the positions he can play. and considering hes 25m i dnt think he wd want 2 b a squad player like moses/marin/ he might b gd but is he better thn mata/hazard/oscar? no he is not. and also if he really is so great why does he nt get regular call up to brazil? kaka is being selcted ahead of him/
09/11/2012 17:02:00
I wish he was a CF I would have volunteerd to travel to ukraine and bring him myself. But I think the thrio of Hazard, Mata and Oscar with the option of Marin Moses is certainly enough for us we should spend the money on a center forward
09/11/2012 17:02:00
chelsea have made a profit of 1.4m this season , we are the 5th biggest football club in the world and we are now officialy debt free.....ktbffh
09/11/2012 17:04:00
Willian is very, very tempting but the question is; should we sacrifice our very own future (i.e Josh, piazon and Kdb) because of his quality? I would bring him here if lampard decide against signing the reported one year contract handed out to him.

desmond honestly speaking i havent seen anything in him that would exite me to sign.....just because he is brazillian it doesnt mean he has to be great...he is an ok average player that all i can say about him and nothing else....i would play moses ahead of him anytime...for me moses look far better than him...

*anything special*

Spurs won't pay the required money to get him. Also don't know how we need him since we have Mazacar. Plus Oscar's case was very different because it only meant pushing Mata wide and not to the bench. In Willian's case, one of Mazacar has to go to the bench which is quite frankly an expensive bench.

Spurs fans will soon be here buddy
09/11/2012 17:19:00
Yea, I know that and I am not saying we have to buy by force, but yikes the lad is tempting as munich glory said and he'll only play from the bench, if spurs could get him, it will be a good buy for them, expecially if they find themselves in the UCL next season. Or manure can benefit from him too, so could city who don't have a number 10
09/11/2012 17:32:00
where will spurs ever get 25m to buy him. that arguement is a totally void as long as they have the tax avoiding, island owner miserly billionaire as their benefactor. how come a billionaire avoid to spend a 100 million on his team hmmm!!!!!!!!. what a miser. he should be buried with at least 10 million on his body when his time come.

City play Nasri, Yaya and overrated Nasri in the no.10 role though. Willian is sort of like Hazrd - from the flanks to the middle. Man U won't make a move for him. Will be wasting money. If there is any player from that team needed, it is probably Fernandinho. He has the defensive and passing ability to suit the pivot. However, you are putting Ramires's position in jeopardy and then Lampard's position is in the club is threatened. Most importantly however, Josh and KDB's future is somewhat threatened.
09/11/2012 17:42:00
@kaku, I know that too, fernandinho is what we need mostly from that team. Heard man utd is going for wayama too for £12m....premier league will be more scarier than it is now.
09/11/2012 17:52:00
Man U is crazy to think Celtic will sell Victor for 12mm.
09/11/2012 17:56:00
Apparently we are leading the chase for the new "didier drogba" in winfrey bony a 23yr old striker for vitesse who we have a good relationship with, a friend called him a cold striker in front of goal. But I don't know anything apart from the fact that he is an ivorian who have a goal ratio of .68 per game
