Andre Villas-Boas is smiling…but why? Does he know something we don’t?
We have been nudged in the direction of this message board where the image below claims to be of Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Willian, who has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham. So is it him? If so, what does it mean?
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has strongly hinted that he is interested in signing Willian from Shakhtar Donetsk.
Villas-Boas has already moved to strengthen his squad in recent days with the return of Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City, but is expected to be busy in the transfer market before the close of the window next week.
With Luka Modric set to sign for Real Madrid – Villas-Boas said he hopes Spurs can conclude his sale “in the next couple of days” – Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian, a target for Chelsea last season, is believed to be on their radar.
“He is a player that I was interested in last year – an extremely talented player,” Villas-Boas said. “I wouldn’t want to go very deep because I feel it would be disrespectful for Shakhtar, which is a club I have a good relationship with, so the only thing I can tell you is that last year when I was at Chelsea I was interested in the player.”
So is the 24 year old Brazilian international about to bring an end to his five year Ukrainian adventure ahead of a move to White Hart Lane?
