Chelsea will be getting younger as they hope to defend their Premier League title, as they have signed 19-year-old Brazilian prodigy Nathan.
He has already passed his physical and agreed to terms with Chelsea, but the financial details of his contract are unknown.
His full name is Nathan Allan de Souza, but he is always identified by just his first name. Nathan will give the Blues more midfielder depth.
Fellow midfielder Eden Hazard recently won the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award, but Nathan will provide more quality depth at the midfielder position.
Nathan has played for the Brazil squad at the Under-17 and Under-20 levels, and he will be taking the next step in his young career.
Nathan scored five goals in five games for the Under-17 squad in the 2013 Under-17 World Cup.
Chelsea considers Nathan as an “attacking midfielder with an eye for goal and impressive pace.”
