Chelsea Secures Midfield Maestro with Summer Boost and Imminent Medical

Chelsea wonderkid Andrey Santos is likely to return to Vasco do Gama as the Blues seek summer flexibility.

A short-term loan agreement allows Chelsea to evaluate the midfielder over the summer, who should now be granted a UK visa.

Andrey Santos, the Chelsea wonderkid, is set to return to his former club Vasco da Gama on a three-month loan.

After failing to obtain a work visa to play in England following his £16 million move to Stamford Bridge in January, the 18-year-old midfielder is poised to return to Brazil.

Santos will undergo a physical before joining Vasco, where he will play up to nine matches before joining the Brazil squad for the Under-20 World Cup in May.

After missing out on a UK visa by just one point on his most recent application, his games for Vasco in the Brazilian first division could be key.

Chelsea have big expectations for Santos, who recently guided Brazil to victory in the South American U20 Championship, where he was the tournament’s joint-top scorer.

Vasco are poised to win the battle to recruit Santos ahead of Palmeiras, who have been unable to reach an agreement with Chelsea to loan him out for the remainder of the season.

Chelsea are interested in scouting Santos during their pre-season tour of the United States this summer.

Because of the loan’s short duration, Chelsea will be able to include their teenage sensation in their squad for the 2023-24 season.
