Chelsea now want to sign “Heir of Cafu” for just £6.2m with proposal made

Chelsea are being linked with yet another teenager as they continue to build for the future by grabbing all the top young talents around the world.

They look to be close to pulling off a deal to sign the next biggest thing coming out of Brazil, winger Estevao Willian. And now they are being linked to another 17-year-old rising star.

Sources: Gareth Southgate to Chelsea!?

According to ESPN Brazil, Chelsea are prepared to offer £6.2 million to acquire 17-year-old right-back Pedro Lima from Série B club Sport, with Pedro initially being loaned to Strasbourg in the first season.

Chelsea’s other club Strasbourg have been taking on a number of the young talents that Chelsea have, and they will be taking on more next season no doubt. Winger Angelo and midfielder Andrey Santos are already currently on loan at the French club from Chelsea this season, and it is possible that they stay there and spend next season on loan as well.

It is seen as a tactic for the future so they can have a bunch of the top players in the world, but will not have to splash out millions to acquire them with them already being on Chelsea’s books.

The next Cafu

Cafu: the born winner who became the most complete full-back of his time

“Heir of Cafu”. That’s how the Spanish newspaper ASe describe the young Lima.

Cafu of course was one of the best ever right backs to play the game and was one of the best ever players to play for Brazil during a golden generation for them.

Chelsea have apparently already made a proposal to sign the youngster in a deal that would see him arrive at the club this summer and then join Strasbourg on loan.

Lima has been a regular throughout the Brazil youth national teams and recently played at the U17 World Cup for them.

Let’s see if Chelsea can get this one done.
