Willian has reportedly already agreed terms to move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer after his deal with Chelsea expires.

The Brazil winger has spent seven years at Stamford Bridge but has not agreed a contract extension at Stamford Bridge.

Willian and his family are keen to remain in the capital and the 31-year-old had also been linked with a move to Spurs' north London rivals Arsenal.

But his desire to play for former boss Mourinho appears to have paved the way for a summer transfer to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Mourinho signed Willian during his second spell at Chelsea in 2013 and the pair keep in touch to this day.

According to beIN Sports presenter Richard Keys, the deal is already agreed and Willian will be following Mourinho to the Blues' bitter rivals.

"He's (Willian) another one that has already spoken to Jose Mourinho, he's on his way to Tottenham," Keys told the Keys & Gray show.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man recently discussed his strong relationship with the Portuguese manager in an interview with Bolivia Talk Show.

"Nothing arrived from Mourinho but we do have a good relationship he's a big friend of mine," Willian said.

"We speak to each other sometimes but when it comes to that (speaking about transfers) he respects me a lot."

Speaking last week, Willian admitted that he was uncertain where his future lies. He added: "I like London and my family likes it too but that's a question I don't know how to answer.

"I don't know which club I'm going to or if I'm staying here at Chelsea or if I'm leaving to another London club or if I'm leaving England, that's something I don't know."

However, it now appears that Mourinho has acted to land his man and the Brazilian will be swapping west London for north London at the end of the season.
