Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
According to the Telegraph normally quite good for transfer stories this is the story
The two clubs have agreed a £30m deal with the Brazilian in London currently undergoing a medical. Though the deal is not fully complete and there is a small possibility he could still opt for Liverpool, Spurs look increasingly likely to make their fifth summer signing.
Liverpool were originally thought to be favourites to sign Willian, but Spurs decided to revisit their interest in the former Shakhtar Donestk player. Andre Villas-Boas had attempted to sign Willian in January, with chairman Daniel Levy travelling to Ukraine to speak to negotiate a deal with Shaktar, but the player moved to Russian club Anzhi instead.
But with Anzhi owner Suleyman Kerimov putting the entire first-team squad up for sale, Spurs decided to take advantage and bid.
With Spurs' having already signed forward players Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado, and the potential arrival of Willian to follow, there will be more doubt over Gareth Bale's future at the club.
The transfer would also take Tottenham within less than £10m of Manchester City's summer expenditure and make them the Premier League's second-highest spenders.
Fingers Crossed it is true and it comes off would be a huge signing top draw player

Being a cynic, I think Levy struck a deal with RM months back and that part of the deal was that the deal would not be announced until Spurs finished buying in replacements and spending all that filthy lucre. Old Levy would have been more than aware as to how much prices go up when the target clubs know you have loads of money burning a hole in your pocket. So this way, he gets players at the price he wants, and at the same time knows how much is available to spend.
Sounds like and X-Files type conspiracy eh?
