Brazilian wonderkid Kenedy to join Chelsea after Fluminense sell him to investment fund [GloboEsporte]

Chelsea are becoming renowned for picking up world class youngsters and 19 year old Kenedy could be next on their list.

The Fluminense striker/right winger, who has featured heavily on 101GG in recent months, was sold to an investment fund for €8m, according to major Brazilian media outlet GloboEsporte.

GloboEsporte report that Kenedy is expected to join fellow Brazilians Oscar, Willian, Ramires, Filipe Luis and Diego Costa at Chelsea in the summer.

The 19 year old wonderkid, who has been compared to Hulk of Zenit, is blessed with pace, trickery and a mean left foot shot.

Manchester United were also reportedly interested in young Kenedy but Jose Mourinho appears to have convinced the young star to come to Stamford Bridge.

Playing alongside Fred at Fluminense, Kenedy has recently been given a succession of starts and he has repaid his coaches faith with 3 goals in his last 5 outings.
