It appears that Chelsea have completed the singing of another huge Brazilian talent, according to many sources this morning around the world.
Nathan is said to be in London now completing the medical and paperwork and that the deal will be announced imminently. The fee is to be around £4.5 million for a player who was also being tracked by a number of clubs including Manchester United and Barcelona.
But it is Chelsea who have won the race according to the players international team mate Thiago Mosquito who has congratulated Nathan via Instagram telling him “welcome to Chelsea”.
It was no secret that Chelsea were looking to sign Nathan and it seems as if the deal is done and that the 19-year-old Brazilian youth international will be confirmed as a Chelsea player signing from Atletico Paranaense.
It is likely that he will be loaned back out straight away, possibly back to the Brazilian club in a deal that has become a regular occurrence at Stamford Bridge.
It’s certainly a real coup for Chelsea singing Nathan, he’s very highly rated in world football and is one of the hottest young talents around.
