Liverpool, Manchester City battle Chelsea for €55 million-rated Brazilian teenage sensation


According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Luis Guilherme is gaining popularity in the English market. Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City are interested in the Brazilian teenage sensation. Meanwhile, the youngster has a release clause worth €55 million in the new contract he signed with Palmeiras.

Who is Luis Guilherme?
Luis Guilherme is the latest prodigy to rise to prominence in his homeland. Brazil has produced world-class prospects like Endrick, Estevao Willian, and Marcos Leonardo in the last few years, with the trio gaining popularity in the market. Endrick has already secured a move to Real Madrid, while Estevao and Leonardo are highly sought-after players in Europe.

As for Luis Guilherme, the 17-year-old has come leaps and bounds at Palmeiras, taking age-group football by storm. The teenage sensation has already made his first-team debut for the club, turning out 27 times thus far. Meanwhile, the Brazilian prodigy has captured the attention of many high-profile clubs in Europe, including Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The young winger has featured on Chelsea’s radar for many months, with the Blues closely monitoring his progress. The project led by Todd Boehly and his associates has concentrated on signing young players to long-term contracts to create a model for long-term success. Several Brazilian prodigies have joined Chelsea, with Luis Guilherme emerging as a target.

As for Liverpool, the Reds are in a spot of bother over Mohamed Salah’s long-term future. The long-serving attacker has captured the attention of several Saudi Pro League bigwigs. So, the Reds are keeping their options open and scouring the market for young prospects. Luis Guilherme has thus popped up on Liverpool’s radar.

Meanwhile, Manchester City might not need a long-term solution on the flanks after signing Jeremy Doku this past summer. But with Jack Grealish and Phil Foden not consistently delivering the goods, they can do with a new wide attacker. Guilherme is thus an option worth considering for Manchester City.

Meanwhile, the youngster’s new contract, which he signed last month, with Palmeiras has a release clause worth €55 million. The price may seem steep. But Chelsea and Manchester City do not shy away from breaking the bank for players they believe in. However, it is unclear if Liverpool will pay €55 million to secure Luis Guilherme’s services.
