“Wouldn’t be surprised”: Former PL star tips Chelsea ace to make the jump to Tottenham

Willian could leave Chelsea for Tottenham claims Chris Sutton

In an interview with Stadium Astro (h/t Express), former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has claimed that he wouldn’t be surprised to see Blues’ star Willian join London rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Willian’s contract with Chelsea should have expired last month, but the Brazilian penned a short-term extension to see out the 2019/20 campaign. However, his future beyond the ongoing season remains uncertain, with the 31-year-old having rejected multiple contract offers from Frank Lampard’s side. (h/t Express)

The bone of contention in the negotiations is the duration of the contract, with Willian demanding a three-year deal, which Chelsea are reluctant to offer, given that he will be turning 32 next month. This has led to a lot of speculations around his future, with Tottenham showing an interest in his signing. (h/t Express)

It was Spurs’ boss Jose Mourinho who brought Willian to Chelsea back in 2013. And the Brazilian has gone on record on multiple occasions stating that the pair share a very healthy relationship.

There have been reports that Spurs have put forth a lucrative contract for Willian. And now, former Chelsea striker Sutton has insisted that a switch to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from Stamford Bridge could very well happen this summer. (h/t Express)

“It looks like that ship [Willian staying at Chelsea] has sailed. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him end up at somewhere like Spurs if I’m totally honest. I think he’s still got a good few years in him left.”

Indeed, Willian has impressed heavily since the restart of the season last month, indicating that he still has plenty left to offer at this level.
