Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hijacked Tottenham’s proposed £30million deal for Brazil winger Willian. And the dramatic swoop for the Anzhi Makhachkala star immediately put Gareth Bale’s world-record switch to Real Madrid in doubt. Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas insisted his side could cope without Bale after they stormed to a 5-0 win against Dinamo Tbilisi in their Europa League qualifying play-off. But Sportsmail understands Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is so furious about Mourinho’s £32m move for Willian that he is threatening to pull the plug on Bale’s departure. Stunned White Hart Lane officials will consider their next move on Friday. Negotiations with Real about Bale are so far advanced that the £94m deal is still likely to go through by the September 2 deadline. However Levy’s apparent fury provides yet another twist to the biggest transfer saga of the summer.
