Barcelona Are Trailing Chelsea For This Gifted Youngster: Is He A Star In The Making?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Mundo Deportivo claimed that Barcelona are trailing Chelsea in the race to land Vasco da Gama youngster Andrey Santos. It has been claimed that the Catalan club are struggling to compete with the Blues in pursuit of the Brazilian whizkid.

Santos’ Impressive Rise In Brazilian Football

The 18-year-old has made his way up the youth ranks of Vasco da Gama as he has put in a handful of impressive displays for them in the Brazilian Serie B. Santos has already been involved in 34 league matches for the Brazilian club so far, finding the back of the net eight times in the process across multiple competitions.

The Rio de Janeiro-born talent has begun to prove his worth as a decent box-to-box midfielder in Brazilian football. Hence, it is no surprise that Barcelona are in the race to acquire his services as he is no doubt a player to watch out for in the future as long as he continues to develop his game with each year.

Santos is under contract at Vasco da Gama until 2027, so Barca would have to pay a big fee if they want to recruit the Brazilian prospect. He is already good enough to play for Barcelona’s B team and could make an impact in Xavi’s squad in the coming seasons.

Barcelona Trailing Chelsea For Santos: Is He A Star In The Making?

Santos has got a tendency to net goals consistently from midfield and can also engineer a few decent opportunities for his teammates in the final third. He is a technically gifted footballer who has already shown plenty of signs of promise with his performances in the Brazilian Serie B.

The Brazilian wonderkid primarily operates as a defensive midfielder but can also play as a box-to-box midfielder or as an attacking midfielder if his manager tells him to do so.

Santos has got the potential to become a future star in world football. Hence, he will be a great signing for Barcelona in the long run. However, the South American talent is still quite raw and would need time to settle into life at the Nou Camp.

Still, there is no denying that Santos is a star in the making and could grow into a future star in Barca‘s world-renowned La Masia academy. Thus, it makes sense for the Catalan club to step up their chase to sign the Vasco da Gama prospect next year.
