Willian: It’s been my dream to join Chelsea
Chelsea new-boy Willian has revealed it has always been a “dream” to move to Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian completed his €37 million move from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala on Wednesday upon securing a work permit.
And after having a medical at London rivals Tottenham, Willian is delighted to have joined the Blues and is looking forward to working under Jose Mourinho.
“I’ve always been following Chelsea and every time I came to London I would try to see a Chelsea game and see how the team was doing because it’s been my dream to come to play here,” he told the club’s official website.
“Finally it’s become a reality, and when the offer came I never gave a thought to anybody else, I said to myself that I would run here, and I’m happy to be here now. Chelsea was always my first choice.
“It’s going to be an immense pleasure to work with Jose Mourinho, listen to him and learn from him. I’m sure I’m going to grow as a professional and I’m looking forward to training,” he continued.
“He’s one of the best coaches in the world with everything he’s won. I’m sure I’m going to learn a lot and improve a lot.”
