Two Ideal Premier League destinations for Willian, who is willing to leave Chelsea
Chelsea and Brazil winger Willian is adamant that he wants to leave the club even after the appointment of new manager Maurizio Sarri. The 29-year-old was expected to leave Stamford Bridge had Antonio Conte stayed, however, he has decided to take the exit door after the Italian’s departure as well.
Willian is probably seeking regular games elsewhere in order to re-enhance his reputation as one of the dazzling wingers in the game. He has shown enough quality to attract interests from big clubs either in England or in the rest of Europe.
The Brazilian had a rather lame World Cup which hasn’t helped his cause to entice massive offers from potential suitors. However, we all know he possesses the tricks to be a difference-maker wherever he goes.
Here are the two ideal Premier League destinations where he can go and make himself a name:
United have kept close tabs on the player and are still keen to get him if he quits Chelsea. Jose Mourinho needs a right-sided winger who can be a threat going forward and also perform the required defensive actions. Willian fits that bill perfectly and can perform the roles asked of him by the manager.
In return, the Brazilian is expected to get regular games, which will help him regain his best form. The Red Devils might also get the missing piece in their attacking jigsaw, which may propel them to challenge Manchester City next season.
Tottenham have been quiet spectators in this transfer window, with stadium construction taking the toll on their spending ability. It is now almost certain that Heung-Min Son will miss the early parts of next season due to Asian Games. So, Mauricio Pochettino might be looking for a replacement who can fill in those South Korean boots.
The North London club should target his Willian to bolster their attacking force. The latter has pace, directness and devilish crossing to impact the game.
Tottenham need strength in depth to keep challenging on all fronts. Willian will not only add depth but also has the attributes to take over as the first-choice and thrive in the high-intensity system under Pochettino.
