It has been revealed how Willian decided to join Chelsea when the London club came for him in 2011. The 27-year old, who was at Anzhi Makhachkala before moving to London, spoke about his move to Chelsea by explaining that it is impossible for him to explain how he felt about the move because he has always been looking forward to get the chance to play for the West London club and the time he joined Chelsea was one of the best moments of his life.

That is my dream, I have to go there, I do not care, but I go there’. The Brazilian joined Chelsea in 2013 for £32 million and he blossomed with flair, brilliance and skills shown to wow the Stamford Bridge spectators so many times since making his debut; he has appeared 115 times with 15 goals to his name.
