Willian has posted a picture of his new Arsenal crest tattoo on Instagram ahead of a rumoured 3 year-deal to join Mikel Arteta at The Emirates. The Brazilian also sports a tattoo of bitter rivals Chelsea, for whom Willian has played since 2013.
“My heart will always belong to Chelsea,” the Brazilian international told Soccer on Sunday. “Until the paperwork goes through. Then my heart will always belong to Arsenal, for the time being. As I say, I’ll review who my heart always belongs to on an ongoing basis.”
“For sure, I’ll get rid of the Chelsea tattoo,” said Willian. “I ran a Brillo Pad over it this morning and now it says ‘elsea ootball lub’. Too painful though. I’ll have to get the laser.”
“Could have been worse,” he added. “David’s Chelsea tattoo was on his arse. He tried a Brillo Pad and ended up in casualty.”
