The Brazilian midfielder has been heavily linked with a transfer to the west London club in recent weeks and fuelled the speculation by confirming that he had travelled to London to meet some of the Blues’ stars.
There has been no official confirmation that the 19-year-old, who currently plays for Atletico Paranaense, has completed his move to the west London club.
However, the player himself appears to have confirmed that he will be joining the Blues with a post on the photo-sharing app.
The Brazil Under-19 international shared the pictures above on his Instagram account and wrote: “A dream is coming true!
“First of all I want to thank God for always lighting my way, my dad who always believed in my talent and was a real warrior while helping me to reach my goals, my family and friends who always supported me…
“And I am also thankful to Club Atletico Paranaense, which was part of this journey and where I played for 6 years of my career. Thank you Chelsea for trusting in me, I will do my best to support my team on reaching new achievements. WE ARE ALL BLUE.”
While there is still no official word from the west London club, the 19-year-old midfielder also added “Chelsea FC” to his bio on the social media platform, cementing speculation that a deal for the midfielder is complete.
