This is a picture of Anzhi Makhachkala star Willian. That much we know. Everything else is simply claim, counter-claim and speculation.
However, it’s worth noting that the tweeter – a certain CFC Cathy – alleges that this picture was taken by a friend who met the Brazilian at Terminal 1 of London Heathrow, where he was preparing to fly to Liverpool.
Both the Anfield club and Tottenham have been linked with the £30m rated forward but, according to reports, Spurs have won the race for the former Shakhtar Donetsk man.
We’re not entirely sure whether a Chelsea fan (of 37 years, as Cathy alleges to be) would be more keen to troll Liverpool fans or gloat at Spurs fans. Either way, we thought it was worth bringing this picture to your attention but we strongly recommend not setting much store by it…
…And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more spurious, Joseph Musker, a Liverpool fan with an impressive 23k followers, tweeted this:
