Chelsea are doing their transfer business early, investing £4.5million in 19-year-old Nathan Allan de Souzahas.
The Brazilian bought from Atletico Paranaense didn’t take long to show off his ability to speak English whilst saying nothing:
“I am very happy to be joining Chelsea, the champions of England, and I hope I will be able to learn a lot and develop my game.”
Something tells us he’ll fit in nicely.
Nathan was, however, more verbose last week, telling his Instagram followers:
“A dream is coming true! First of all I want to thank God for always lighting my way, my dad who always believed in my talent and was a real warrior while helping me to reach my goals, my family and friends who always supported me.
“And I am also thankful to Club Atletico Paranaense, which was part of this journey and where I played for 6 years of my career.
“Thank you Chelsea for trusting in me, I will do my best to support my team on reaching new achievements. WE ARE ALL BLUE.”
Da ba dee, da ba dah.
Of course, being blue has a slightly different nuance in English – but he’s not the only one not fully versed in the the habits of his new homeland.
This is Nathan riding in a car with his sister, who looks like she’s already got the hang of the traditional British greeting…
