Revealed – Why Chelsea Has Not COMPLETED Signing Of Brazilian, £8m Bid Made

Kenedy-of-Fluminense

Barcelona would be appearing in court in few weeks time over the Neymar transfer saga of 2013. Sandro Rosell, the former Barcelona president had to resign due to allegations of contradictory information regarding the transfer fees and details of the former Santos striker. Current Barcelona president, Bartomeu isn’t still able to settle the whole deal saga, even after 2 seasons, and the player already settled in the Nou Camp.

Transfer involving players from South America, especially Brazil is always involving so many parties, and deals never get to be finalized on time. It has become hard of late to successfully sign a player from Brazil. But Chelsea being a club not to shy away from controversial situations (Kakuta?), still went ahead to place two young Brazilians on their target list for the summer transfer window. Nathan and Kenedy.

No doubt, the Brazilian league is full of so many talented teenagers as far as soccer is concerned. Brazil is regarded as a football nation, and you shouldn’t expect less from the quality of players it keeps churning out. You know them, the greatest names of soccer: Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Pele, Robinho, Adriano. And Chelsea appreciates quality, the present squad consists of 4 Brazilians, while some others are on loan. Hence, moving for Kenedy and Nathan was just pertinent, despite the obvious hurdles to scale.

Nathan deal took two weeks to finally materialize, after having done his medicals. And the Kenedy transfer now seems on hold. One of the Fluminense forward’s agents, Evandro Ferreira said “There is nothing concrete with Chelsea, only speculation”, meaning the 19 year-old might not be leaving Brazil anytime soon. He also claimed that Manchester United’s claim of an 8 million pounds bid isn’t official. With so many middlemen involved in this deal, Chelsea’s offer of 4 million pounds has been discarded as not official yet, and the wonderkid’s agents still awaits a real offer from the club.
