When Chelsea signed Brazilian youngster Nathan, the young forward was one of the most highly rated youngsters at the time.

The 23-year-old had impressed in the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup and scored five goals in five matches and was named the second-best player of the tournament, winning the competition’s Silver Ball.

Unfortunately for the Brazilian, it hadn’t gone well for him at Stamford Bridge, and he has not played a single game for the club after arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2015.

Nathan joined Chelsea from Atletico Paranaense for £4.5m back in 2015 and the 23-year-old has been shipped out on loan for 6 consecutive spells.

Report from Brazilian media outlet Globo Esporte claim that the Chelsea loanee who’s currently at Atletico Mineiro is most likely to stay at his homeland for longer as his current side and some other teams are interested in signing the attacker.

Atletico Mineiro are keen to sign him permanently, and he has been with the club since July 2018 and has made 41 appearances for the club, scoring 5 goals.
