Santos is Chelsea’s third recruit during this transfer window. Before that, the London club had already sealed deals for Benoit Badiashile and David Fofana. With these three new recruits, “The Blues” have spent around 70 million euros. They are currently the most active team in the winter transfer window of 2022/23.

Currently, this star is preparing to fly to London (England), undergo a medical examination, and launch a new club right before the match between Chelsea and Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League.
