As Brazilian side Flamengo continue working on signing Robert Kenedy from Chelsea, journalist Venê Casagrande now brings the latest updates on this chase.
On his Youtube channel, the reporter claims that the winger already knows he’s not in the Blues’ plans and should not be used by the club this season.
Kenedy’s priority was to play for Chelsea. Since that shouldn’t be possible, his option would be to stay in Europe, but it seems his opinion now has changed.
Casagrande learned that in talks with Flamengo, the player has already given his ‘ok’ for a transfer, accepting the project that the Rio de Janeiro side have for him.
Still, Flamengo have a tough job ahead. They know it won’t be easy to make the signing, especially because there are other clubs interested in Kenedy, including Spanish side Real Sociedad.
The Brazilian side have been making several signings on loan with buying options, and that would be the plan with Kenedy as well, as they’ll try to get him on a one-year spell with the right for redemption.
The winger’s contract with Chelsea runs until 2025.
