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?
