Arsenal flop Willian is set to join Fulham after his Corinthians contract was cancelled earlier this month following numerous problems.
35 appearances with one goal and four assists show that it didn’t go well on the pitch for the former Chelsea star.
Away from the pitch, his family were subjected to vile threats and abuse that required police intervention.
As a result, he wanted to leave to return to Europe and Corinthians have obliged.
William still had 16 months left on his current deal, but he also had a release clause should a European club come calling, although it does not seem like this is what has been triggered.
The player has now apparently agreed a one-year deal with Fulham. It was reported earlier in the summer he would sign a two-year deal.
William reportedly turned down offers from Turkish, Greek, Arab and MLS clubs to return to London and is likely to be announced as a Fulham player today (Tuesday) after his medical.
