OFFICIAL announcement made as Chelsea confirm another transfer deal is all completed
It has been confirmed that Chelsea have let Lucas Piazon leave the club and sign for FC Braga.
Chelsea have been in the headlines alot over the past few weeks about players that could arrive, and players that could be leaving over the next few weeks, with Piazon a name that is no longer wanted at the club.
The forward is somewhat of a forgotten man at Stamford Bridge with his only Premier League outing come in the memorable 8-0 win over Aston Villa back in December 2012, but is his time at the club is now over
He has now agreed a move away from the club on a permanent basis and has joined Portuguese side FC Braga on a long-term target, Chelsea announced on the club website: “Piazon’s new club Braga are fourth in the Primeira Liga. They are managed by former Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal, who was also Piazon’s boss at Rio Ave last season.
“We would like to wish Lucas the best of luck for the rest of his career and thank him for his service.”
The move has been a long-time coming for Piazon and many Chelsea fans will wish him the very best of luck. It is just a shame that such a gifted player never fulfilled his potential at the club
But as we said, this move was a long-time coming and he needed to make this move now to forge a career for himself. So Chelsea fans will wish him the best of luck, as the club did.
But as we also said, it is such a shame that a gifted player like Piazon could not make it at the club
