SHOCKING NEWS: it’s official and soon to be revealed that Chelsea has emerged victorious in the race to sign the top-ranked Brazilian wonderkid and Barcelona and PSG top target. The biggest talent in Europe right now was scouted by barcelona, but Pochettino saw him as the right candidate. After reaching a personal agreement, the player is prepared to move to Stamford Bridge, and a contract signing will soon be announced.

As they attempt to complete a deal for the Brazilian wonderkid, reports in Spain claim that Chelsea is almost certain to activate the €60 million release clause in Estevao's Palmeiras contract.


Estevao, nicknamed ‘Messinho,’ stands out as a prominent talent in South America, drawing attention from major European clubs, despite his limited senior experience at Palmeiras. Both Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have shown keen interest in the 16-year-old, but Chelsea appears poised to secure his signature by traveling to Brazil with the intention of meeting his €60 million release clause, as reported by Footballwave.

Chelsea’s commitment to acquiring Estevao is evident, with the club’s technical director, Laurence Stewart, reportedly journeying to Sao Paulo in October to engage with Palmeiras president Leila Periera. The discussions centered around the possibility of signing Estevao, with the understanding that Palmeiras would only consent to his departure if the €60 million release clause was satisfied. Chelsea has reportedly concluded that Estevao warrants the payment of this substantial fee.

While Chelsea seems to be leading the race for ‘Messinho,’ both Barcelona and PSG expressed interest in securing his talents. In December, PSG’s Luis Campos communicated to Estevao’s representatives that the club would not meet his asking price. Instead, PSG is set to acquire fellow Brazilian youngsters Gabriel Moscardo and Lucas Beraldo.

Barcelona, although still hopeful of signing Estevao, has yet to make a formal attempt, providing Chelsea with an opportunity to make their move.

Should Chelsea successfully sign Estevao, he would mark the fourth Brazilian youngster to join the club since Todd Boehly assumed ownership. Notably, Andrey Santos, Angelo Gabriel, and Deivid Washington joined the Blues in the past year, although none of them have made a significant impact in the first team so far.
