Chelsea are at present seeking to signal a brand new midfielder this window as a part of an enormous squad rebuild. Late strikes for Enzo Fernandez of Benfica, and Moises Caicedo of Brighton, look fairly attainable.
However may Chelsea additionally look in-house when contemplating new names for his or her midfield rebuild?
Nicely, maybe they may, and so they in all probability needs to be.
Chelsea allowed new signing Andrey Santos to move out to play on the South American Championships this month, and it’s proving to be an important determination.
When he was signed it was at all times going to be as a participant for the long run and one from ‘Imaginative and prescient 2030’. However proper now, Santos is admittedly exhibiting up and making individuals be aware of his identify, for a lot of causes.
Santos is making his identify heard out in South America proper now and he has scored two targets in his final two video games for Brazil U20s. Final night time, he captained his crew to a 3-1 win over closest rivals Argentina.
Chelsea’s rebuild is at present occurring, and Santos is admittedly pushing himself to the forefront of it already. Possibly he is available in subsequent season as that third midfielder? I can see it. Possibly he even is available in now and saves Chelsea some money? I haven’t but seen him sufficient to make that judgement, personally.
However regardless, what a participant we’ve got on our arms right here, and what a pacesetter already on the age of simply 18. Doing dressing room crew talks earlier than the can be very John Terry-like. That is good:
Andrey Santos’ speech within the dressing room earlier than todays sport, because the captain of Brazil U20s.
Already a pacesetter. We’d like these at Chels. pic.twitter.com/r0DPTwCjET
