And the Telegraph claim Miami, co-owned by Becks, would have handed William a three-year contract.

That’s the timespan Willian wanted for a new Chelsea deal – but the Blues would not go beyond 24 months so negotiations faltered.

Now Spurs are said to be dangling a massive contract in front of the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk and Anzhi Makhachkala star.

The Brazilian won the Premier League when Tottenham chief Jose Mourinho was his Chelsea boss.

And his forceful style is just what Mourinho admires – and also what he might feel is missing from his Spurs team.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to have monitored him.

And he has previously admitted he is keen to play in the USA.

But it is understood Willian is keep to remain in the European elite while he still considers he is at his peak.

That will frustrate Becks, as the Telegraph say they would have willingly paid him more than £100k a week as one of the top earners in the MLS.
