It seems Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain will be battling over players this summer transfer window. However, the jostling for players is now going overseas to South America.
O Globo Esportes reports that Flamengo’s rising star, Matheus França, is at the center of transfer speculation as several top European clubs. With offers exceeding €20 million, clubs like Chelsea and PSG have emerged as potential destinations for França.

However, the Blues are emerging as a likely destination for the 19-year-old. The Premier League giants recently secured another teenage Brazilian midfielder in Andrey Santos. As a result, it’s no surprise the London-based club wants to add another player of that caliber.
França mainly plays as an attacking midfielder for the South American heavyweight in brief appearances this 2023 season. As the transfer saga unfolds, França’s future remains uncertain.
Flamengo will evaluate the offers on the table and assess the potential financial benefits the Brazilian club will receive for allowing their talented midfielder to make a move to European football.
