Chelsea already want Andrey Santos to make his debut. The player is with the Brazilian national team in the South American Under-20 Championship, but has been attracting attention for his performances and excited both the fans and the club.

The sale was made official at the end of last year, but there are still bureaucratic details to be resolved and that’s why the Blues still don’t know for sure when he will be able to play.

In Andrey’s case, according to a report by UOL, it is the work visa that is being a problem. Due to the system practiced in England, which values ​​the player’s time as a professional and the number of matches played, the former Vasco player may have his process delayed.

It is likely that Chelsea will need to ask for an exception case to that the visa is granted to him. The Blues situation is not easy this season. The team occupies the 10th position of the English Championship, seven points from the Europa League classification zone, and has games against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
