Youth Round-Up: Chelsea Target Brazilian Duo

Lucas Piazon is hotly tipped to be a future star

Chelsea’s pursuit of Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Piazon has been dubbed unethical by Juventus sporting director, Guiseppe Marotta.

And the Italian chief has made the stunning claim that the Blues have agreed to pay the teenager an astonishing £870,000-per-year to move to west London.

Piazon – who has been dubbed the ‘new Kaka’ – is set to join the Barclays Premier League champions from Sao Paulo once he turns 18 in January 2012, in a deal that could rise to £8million.

Chelsea are also targetting Brazilian wonderkid Ganso. The Sao Paolo player is expected to join the London outfit in the summer.

The transfer of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been a highly debated subject as he attracts interest from a range of clubs, but the Daily Mirror has today reported that Manchester United will beat Arsenal to the £10 million signing in the summer.
