Real Madrid rarely fails to secure their top transfer targets. Last summer, they outmaneuvered Liverpool and Manchester City to sign Jude Bellingham, and they pulled off a historic free agent coup by bringing Kylian Mbappe to the Bernabeu. They’ve also been adept at acquiring Brazilian talent, signing Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo as teenagers, and securing 17-year-old sensation Endrick, who will join Madrid this summer after scoring the winner in Brazil’s 3-2 victory over Mexico.

Despite their strong track record, Real Madrid appears to have missed out on the highly touted 17-year-old Pedro Lima from Sport Recife. Chelsea has made it a priority to attract rising South American talents, and according to Fabrizio Romano, they have successfully agreed on personal terms with Lima. Discussions between Sport Recife and Chelsea regarding the deal’s structure and payment terms are ongoing. While Real Madrid might attempt to hijack the move, the prevailing belief is that Lima will soon be a Chelsea player. However, Blues fans will have to wait to see him at Stamford Bridge, as he is expected to initially join sister club Strasbourg on loan.

In other news, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has debunked speculation about Christopher Nkunku’s potential departure from Chelsea. The Frenchman, who joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig for £52 million last summer, had his debut season disrupted by injuries, limiting him to just 516 minutes of action across all competitions. Despite reports from Sky Germany about interest and inquiries to cut his Chelsea stint short, Romano confirmed that Nkunku remains a key part of Chelsea’s plans.

“Christopher Nkunku is a crucial part of Chelsea’s plans for next season and the future,” Romano stated on social media. “There is no chance of an exit, despite reports of bids and more. After an unlucky first season, the club continues to see Nkunku as a vital player, and he is determined to succeed at Chelsea.”
