Villas-Boas unaware of Chelsea hijacking of Willian deal
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he is in the dark over a possible hijacking of the Willian deal by Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho's side have reportedly made an eleventh hour bid for the Anzhi Makhachkala star, but Villas-Boas claims he knows nothing about their interest.
"We were just involved in a game so unfortunately I can't give you further information," the Portuguese told reporters.
"I confirmed our interest in the player. Everything is possible, but I'm not aware of the circumstances because of our involvement in the game.
"I don't want it to be a distraction over what we achieved here tonight."
The 35-year-old also refused to answer questions on the future of Gareth Bale, who is said to be on the verge of signing for Real Madrid in a world-record deal.
"On Gareth I am not able to comment on anything that has been my tone since the start of the season and I will not come out of it," Villas-Boas added.
