Willian reacts to Chelsea’s acquisition of Mudryk from Arsenal and provides his opinion on the Blues’ new players

Willian, a former Chelsea player, has responded to reports that the west London club kidnapped Mykhailo Mudryk from Arsenal.

Willian also stated that his former team has landed a good player in 115 million pound Enzo Fernandez, adding that Mudryk reminded him of his own move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea spent nearly £250 million in the winter transfer window, culminating with the Premier League record purchase of Fernandez from Portuguese giants Benfica on deadline day for £115 million.

Fernandez is set to make his Chelsea debut against Fulham, Willian’s new club, on Friday night, and the Brazilian is a fan of the World Cup winner.

When asked about the Argentine’s club-record move to Chelsea, the Brazilian replied, “I saw some highlights [during the] World Cup – he looks excellent!”

Willian compared the circumstances of Mudryk’s signing by Chelsea to the way he (Willian) was kidnapped from Tottenham by the Blues in 2013.

Willian was flown to London by Tottenham, who believed they had a deal in place when Chelsea rushed in.

“I can tell it’s different, but Chelsea is Chelsea,” the 34-year-old told reporters ahead of Friday’s match against Fulham.

“I had planned to go to Tottenham. I had been in London for about three weeks, waiting, waiting, waiting. Chelsea came in on the day I was supposed to sign my deal with Tottenham.

“‘Chelsea has called and wants you there, what do we do now?’ replied my agent.” “I told you I wanted to go to Chelsea.”

Willian moved to Shakhtar Donetsk from Brazilian club Corinthians in August 2007 for a cost of €14 million and stayed for six years. He temporarily played for Anzhi Makhachkala before joining Chelsea for £30 million in 2013. In his second season at Stamford Bridge, he won the Premier League and the League Cup.
