Transfer Rumors and News

Estêvão ‘Messinho’ Willian & Palmeiras react to Chelsea and Barcelona transfer talk

Estevao ‘Messinho’ Willian has been asked about his future amid speculation that Chelsea are set to beat Barcelona to his signature.

The talented teenager has said he dreams of a move to Barcelona, but the rumor mill seems convinced that the Blues are closing in on a deal for the Brazilian.

Meanwhile, Messinho has told reporters he’s not thinking about his future right now.

“My head today is 100% focused on Palmeiras,” he said. “I don’t think about these things, they are secondary. I think about helping Palmeiras and doing everything possible to give them glory.”

Palmeiras coach Abel Ferreria was also asked about the transfer rumors and made it clear he wants to keep hold of the starlet.

“Speaking of Estevao, I am not going to say what I think, I am going to ask Leila – the president of Palmeiras – not to sell to this player,” he said.

“The father, the manager and him will be sad. That he stays with us until 2027. I really think this player is unlike anything I have ever seen. A boy who defends, attacks, shows himself in the game.”

Messinho is still only 17 so can’t move just yet anyway. It remains to be seen where he will end up but the odds of him moving to Barcelona seem to have receded in recent weeks.
