Although Atlético Mineiro and Chelsea are still to make their deal for Nathan official, it seems the Brazilian club are pretty confident that the negotiations will be successful.

Following the end of his loan spell at the end of the year, the midfielder had left Galo and was waiting for the clubs to find a solution.

Now according to Super Esportes, the player is back training with Atlético Mineiro, making it clear that his return to the team is very close.

They say Nathan will be loaned out to Atlético until the summer, and the Brazilian side will have an option to buy him at the end of the spell.

Since his contract with Chelsea expires in June, it’s very likely he’ll be signing a new deal with the Stamford Bridge club before he leaves on loan.

Signed by the Blues back in 2015, Nathan has never had the chance to make a single appearance for the club.
