Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting extremely excited after hearing the news from Metro, that the Blues are set to rival Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United for the signature of Fluminense striker Kenedy.
Kenedy is a name that has been banded around the Transfer Tavern a lot in recent weeks, with many punters inside the Tavern saying they have never actually seen the Brazilian play!
‘There was contact with Chelsea recently,’ said Eduardo Valdes (Kenedy’s representative)
‘It was through Deco, who is now his agent. It was an approach, not a formal offer though.
‘Half of Europe is following him.’
The publication suggests that the Red Devils have already tabled a £5.7 million bid for the exciting talent, but whether they actually sign him is debatable.
The Fluminense starlet has only ever played professional football in Brazil, so a move to England would certainly take a large amount of time for him to adapt.
Kenedy has already made 13 appearances for the Brazil under-17 side, scoring six goals, and he also made seven appearances for the Brazil under-20 side.
