Earlier today, we covered reports from the Spanish press saying Tottenham Hotspur have made their first bid for the Real Sociedad striker Willian José.
Spurs’ €15m was called ‘ridiculous’, since the Spanish side don’t own 100% of the player and want a bigger profit with the sale.
Willian José asked to be removed from a match-day squad this week, and that’s why Real Sociedad haven’t been on great terms with him.
However, according to reports from Brazil today, the La Liga club are actually making a bid for him to extend his contract with them.
Goal Brasil says the player has been ‘studying’ an offer he has to sign a new deal, which would give him a pay rise and extend his contract until 2025.
It’s said the offer has been a way that Real Sociedad found to convince him not to leave them in the January transfer window. Still, the website claims that the player’s wish is to move to England.
These claims from Brazil aren’t being reported independently in Spain, where it’s still thought a move to Tottenham is likely before the end of the window.
