Blues confirm deal for Brazilian Nathan

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Atletico Paranaense midfielder Nathan.

The 19-year-old playmaker has agreed personal terms and will officially join the club when the transfer window re-opens on 1 July.

Nathan, a Brazil Under-20 international, said: “I am very happy to be joining Chelsea, the champions of England, and I hope I will be able to learn a lot and develop my game.”

The teenager scored five goals in five games for Brazil at the Under-17 World Cup in 2013 before being named in the team of the tournament.

Earlier this week, he posted pictures on Instagram showing him signing a contract, suggesting a deal with the Blues had been sealed.
