Asked by Noticias of GuipuzcoaBrazilian Real Sociedad striker Willian José (29), returning from a six-month loan at Wolverhampton, has made it clear he intends to pack up this summer. “My idea is not to stay here. I have been here for five years and need something new. But, of course, I have a contract and I don’t know what’s going to happen ”, he blurted out. The Auriverde, under contract until June 2024, has still not digested the behavior of the leaders of the Basque formation towards him in recent months and he has not deprived himself of making it known.
“I don’t think I was treated well. I expected a little more. When I signed my last extra time with Real, I told Roberto Olabe (sporting director) that there were interested teams, in the Premier League and in La Liga as well. I spoke with him and he told me that if a great team, qualified in the Champions League, showed up, he would let me go. I kept quiet. That’s when the offer came from Tottenham, a great Premier League team, qualified for the Champions. I dreamed of playing the Premier and it was a good opportunity for me. (…) I was not let go. Then there was FC Barcelona and an offer from Manchester United. It was a chance I couldn’t let go, because that’s life. We must seize these kinds of opportunities. (…) I spoke with Mourinho on the phone, I wanted to go to Tottenham. I told them I wanted to join them and they were delighted. But in the end, it didn’t happen and this year I was let go to Wolverhampton. I do not understand why I was retained a few months ago when there was an offer of 23 M € and that there, I was let go on loan. Football, sometimes, is difficult to understand ”, he argued.
