Breaking News: Chelsea owners beaten another transfer as major new shock twist confirmed – DONE DEAL

Adolescent defender was anticipated to sign with a Ligue 1 team owned by BlueCo.

Pedro Lima, a young Brazilian, will not be joining Strasbourg this summer under Chelsea’s BlueCo ownership; Wolves has stepped in to snatch up a shocking last-minute contract for the player.

The 17-year-old right-back had been anticipated to sign a contract with Chelsea-owned Ligue 1 team Strasbourg, which is managed by Patrick Vieira, after weeks of drawn-out talks with his present club Sport Recife.

But the Brazilian team announced in a formal statement on Monday night that they had now secured a deal with Wolves.

“Sport Club do Recife announces that it has signed a binding agreement to transfer athlete Pedro Lima’s economic and federative rights to Wolverhampton Wanderers, from England,” the release stated.

“Customary conditions apply to the agreement, such as the athlete’s consent to the English club’s medical examinations.

“After all business-related acts are finished, President Yuri Romao and the football management committee will provide a statement outlining the operation.”

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Lima and Wolves have reached an agreement on a five-year deal with an additional 12-month option.

On July 1, he is anticipated to show up and finish a medical examination before formally concluding a trade to Molineux.

Lima’s acquisition appears to be a major triumph for Wolves, who last week successfully acquired highly-regarded Portuguese winger Rodrigo Gomes from Braga in a £12.7 million deal.

Tommy Doyle, a former midfielder for England Under-21, will also officially join the team next month after Manchester City exercised their option to acquire a permanent summer move. Doyle will join the team on a full-time basis.

Estevao Willian, the exciting Palmeiras winger known as “Little Messi,” will be joining Chelsea this summer. He underwent medical examinations in Brazil over the weekend in preparation for his £29.5 million move to Stamford Bridge, which could ultimately be worth more than £51 million.

Promising young players from South America including Andrey Santos, Deivid Washington, Angelo Gabriel, and Kendry Paez have also just joined Chelsea.

Tosin Adarabioyo, a former Fulham defender who replaced Thiago Silva, was the first senior acquisition of the new Enzo Maresca era this month. Jhon Duran, the striker for Aston Villa, is still a target for them.
