Chelsea Football Club has officially announced the signing of Brazilian prodigy Estevao Willian in a sensational deal with Palmeiras. The highly anticipated agreement, which includes performance-based add-ons, could reach a staggering value of £51 million. Set to join the Blues in 2025, the 17-year-old talent is expected to make a significant impact at Stamford Bridge. This is reported by SSP.

While the specific length of Estevao's contract remains undisclosed, sources indicate that it will align with Chelsea's approach to securing long-term commitments from promising talents, consistent with the tenure of the current ownership. The club released an official statement confirming the agreement: "Chelsea Football Club has agreed to sign the talented young forward Estevao Willian from Palmeiras, with the player set to formally join our ranks next summer."

Estevao himself took to social media to express his gratitude and excitement, stating, "Thank you, Lord. Another dream come true." The young sensation is without a doubt thrilled to embark on the next chapter of his football career.

This acquisition is in line with Chelsea's ongoing investment in young talents as part of their future-focused strategy. Under the stewardship of sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart, the Clearlake ownership has placed a strategic emphasis on acquiring emerging talents with considerable growth potential within the English football landscape. Estevao stands as the newest addition to Chelsea's ambitious scouting efforts, which extend to South America. It is worth noting that Kendry Paez, an Ecuadorian midfielder, is also set to join the ranks of the Blues in the upcoming year as part of this broader scouting approach.

Having made his debut for Palmeiras in 2023, Estevao has already illustrated his prowess and agility on the field. With three goals to his name in just 15 appearances across various competitions, he has garnered attention for his exceptional skills. As he prepares to make his mark at Chelsea, he will join the ranks of esteemed Brazilian compatriots such as Andrey Santos, Deivid Washington, and Angelo Gabriel, following the departure of Thiago Silva.
