Andrey Santos is looking forward to welcoming Estevao Willian into the CHELSEA squad after his move was announced last week.

The 17-year-old will complete the move to the club next summer after he turns 18. There already is a lot of excitement surrounding Willian who is viewed as one of the biggest talents in Brazil.

“I spoke to Estevao, if I’m not mistaken, it was when he went to play in Colombia, I had played there the month before and he sent me a message saying, ‘man, I really admire you, how you managed to make a difference here in this climate at this altitude’, and I said, ‘man, it’s difficult but you’re going to make it’,” Santos said on the Fora do Jogo podcast.

“Estevao is a kid, I’m a fan of his. He has huge, huge, huge potential. I always spoke about him with my father, I knew he would quickly become a professional because of his quality. I see that he is a focused boy, he has a lot of personality, I think attackers have to have the personality, he is the face of Brazilian football.”

Palmeiras club president Abel Ferreira is worried about what the continued sales of his side’s best young players could mean.

“Do you know the difference between the real [Brazilian real currency] and the euro or dollar? So, It’s difficult.

“We asked Leila not to sell Endrick, Estêvão, Luis Guilherme. But it’s impossible. We’re talking about very large sums. And my job is to find solutions.

” I think the Brazilian national team is the one that can really benefit from this in the medium and long term, if they take care to follow these players.

“I’m not going to say anything about Estêvão, sometimes I’m even afraid of what I say when I think about these players. Lucky for the coach who can count on them. But that’s normal.

“Clubs from Europe want to come to Palmeiras to get players. I’ve already said publicly that several players have been sought after. If we accept all the offers that come our way, my deputies and I will start playing.”
