CHELSEA’S FUTURE IS BRIGHT! Blues Confirm Deal for Brazilian Wonderkid Estevao Willian

Chelsea has confirmed a transfer agreement with Palmeiras to bring Brazilian teen sensation Estevao Willian to the club next summer. The 17-year-old forward will join Chelsea when he turns 18, spending the 2024/25 season with Palmeiras before making the move.


Estevao, highly regarded as one of the best players in his age group, will join Chelsea alongside Kendry Paez in a year. He will be part of a promising group of young talents at the club, including Andrey Santos, Deivid Washington, and Angelo Gabriel.


Estevao and Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who will join on a free transfer at the end of his contract this month, are recent additions under Enzo Maresca’s management. Despite his youth, Estevao has already made a mark in Brazil, featuring in 23 senior matches for Palmeiras, with four goals and three assists.


Estevao is among an exciting generation of players, including Vitor Roque and Endrick, both of whom were pursued by Chelsea before signing with Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively. Estevao is set to sign a long-term contract with Chelsea, likely extending beyond 2030.


Estevao’s signing is part of Chelsea’s ongoing youth recruitment strategy, which may soon include Aston Villa’s Omari Kellyman. The 18-year-old left-footed attacker is a serious target for Chelsea, who are also negotiating the sale of Ian Maatsen in connection with the Kellyman talks.


Chelsea has also added young talents like Omari Hutchinson and Ishe Samuels-Smith from other Premier League clubs, and spent around £20 million on Carney Chukwuemeka in the summer of 2022.
