The dazzling attacking midfielder, who turned 19 last month, has been in London for talks with the Blues this week and passed a medical on Tuesday.

Nathan is seen as the next big thing in South American football and touches down in the capital with an ever-growing reputation.


Premier League champions City had hoped to tie up a deal after first spotting the player at the World Under 17 Championships two years ago.

He has since broken into the Atletico Paranaense team but a serious contract dispute with the Brazilian side meant Chelsea were able to swoop.

Nathan joins the already strong Brazilian contingent at Chelsea, moving alongside Willian, Ramires, Filipe Luis and Oscar.

The staggering potential of Nathan, who can also play as a secondary striker, means he could feature in Jose Mourinho’s first team next season.
