Chelsea secures €26 million deal for Brazilian sensation Gabriel Moscardo
Chelsea have reportedly secured a contract to buy young 18-year-old midfielder Gabriel Moscardo from Corinthians, in an important move for the Premier League giants.
The rumored €26 million transfer fee is a record for the Brazilian club, with the details indicating a combination of an upfront payment and performance-based incentives.
Moscardo transfer rumors had been circulating since the summer, gaining interest from a number of European clubs. However, it appears like Chelsea has won the race to sign the much sought-after player.
The young Brazilian will be joining a group of Brazilians, including Deivid Washington, Andrey Santos, and Angelo Gabriel, who have all visited Stamford Bridge in the last year, causing an uproar in their native country.
While the impact of the move on the first team remains to be seen, the acquisition points out Chelsea’s ongoing concentration on reinforcing their ranks with strong South American prospects.
Joe Shields, who has been important in establishing such deals, is spearheading this teenage talent recruitment.
Chelsea fans are looking forward to Moscardo’s arrival and the young midfielder’s potential contribution to the club’s future success.
