Sometimes deal talks just go on for so long that it looks inevitable that no deal will be found, and it’s looking that way with Willian Borges and Chelsea only now. The latest on his deal situation, with Brazil international’s current contract ready to expire this Summer.
They describe the contract negotiations as being “dead in the water” and point out that he will leave for free soon unless something is sorted out.
They go on to point out that Borges has admitted he and his family are settled in London, so it’s possible that he might look to find another Premier League club.
The report indicates that Gunners and Spurs are interested in signing him, so this news will come as a major boost to them. It’s still not clear what will happen here, but staying at Chelsea now looks very unlikely.
A move to Tottenham would make the most sense because of the Jose Mourinho connection they look to have a good relationship and his hard-working style is perfect for Mourinho.
Despite that, a move to Arsenal could be interesting too. Gunners have a lot of talented players who are inconsistent, so bringing in a proven veteran with Premier League experience could give Mikel Arteta a boost.
