The summer of 2013 was quite a funny one, as Willian made an unexpected U-turn to sign for Chelsea, after he was reportedly close to signing for London rivals, Tottenham.
Willian told Chelsea YouTube channel that he has always wanted to play for Chelsea, and couldn’t reject the dream move once Chelsea came calling.
He said: “I don’t know how I can explain that moment. But it was the best moment I think in my life when I signed with Chelsea because it was my dream to come here.
“When I came I am very, very happy to play for Chelsea, to win titles here, so I am very, very happy.”
“Yes, it was difficult, but I didn’t sign. When at the last moment Chelsea call me I say ‘I’m sorry but I go to Chelsea, that’s my dream. I have to go there, I don’t care. I go there.’”
