Brazilian legend Rivaldo has urged Chelsea star Willian to join London rivals Tottenham Hotspur when his Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season.

Willian – who has played 329 games for Chelsea since arriving in 2013 – is set to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season after contract negotiations with the Blues stalled.

Willian is demanding a three year contract to remain at Chelsea while the Blues are offering the Brazilian a two year deal.

“Willian is attracting some headlines in England as his contract with Chelsea is expiring this summer and there are strong rumours that he may move to a London rival soon,” Rivaldo said.

“Yes, Willian is already playing at a big club, but he has been there for a long time and perhaps he needs a new challenge to recapture his will and motivation at this point in his career in the Premier League.

“A move to Tottenham could be a good option, especially because Willian would reunite with his former coach Jose Mourinho there, and the pair seem to have a good relationship.

“Furthermore, we all know that Mourinho has a special affection for Brazilian players and I am sure he would give lots of opportunities to Willian at Spurs.”
