Fulham attacker Willian has recalled rejecting Tottenham for Chelsea.
In the summer of 2013, the Brazilian was completing a medical at Spurs and on the verge of signing for them when a call came in from Chelsea.
In an interview with The Athletic, he recalls: “Chelsea came on the day I was going to sign the contract with Spurs. I was at Tottenham’s training ground to finalise the deal when the call came.
“I said, ‘OK, I want to go there!'”
The Brazil international moved to Stamford Bridge from Anzhi Makhachkala for a fee in the region of £30million on a five-year deal.
