Chelsea complete Willian signing

London, England (Sports Network) - Chelsea have completed the signing of attacking midfielder Willian from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, the Premier League club confirmed on Wednesday.

"Chelsea are one of the world's best clubs and now I'm going to play for one of the world's best managers," said Willian, who arrives at Stamford Bridge on a new five-year contract

The Blues are believed to have paid in the range of 30 million pounds for the attacker, who looked to be headed to Tottenham after having a medical with the Lillywhites, but Chelsea swooped in at the last moment.

"I'm very happy to be here, it's been a dream of mine to come and play here," Willian added.

The Brazil international becomes Chelsea's third major signing of the summer, joining Germany forward Andre Schurrle and Dutch midfielder Marco van Ginkel.
