According to The Telegraph, former Chelsea winger Willian regreted his move to Arsenal the moment he knew Thiago Silva was joining Chelsea.
With Willian on the verge of signing the contract he wanted from Arsenal, Silva called the former Chelsea winger to inform him he was joining Chelsea.
If I’d known you were moving to Chelsea, I would have stayed there after all,” Willian reacted but knew that there was no coming back for him at that point.
Within two weeks, Willian signed for Arsenal while Thiago Silva became a Chelsea player.
Silva has become an important player for the Blues, helping Chelsea finish 4th in the Premier League, reaching the FA Cup final and also the Champions League final.
While Willian has struggled to impress at Arsenal, who finished 8th in the Premier League and missed out on European football next season.
