‘What a Surprise’ Player’s father appears to confirm Chelsea transfer ‘with a heavy heart’
Angelo Gabriel’s father has expressed his joy at his son’s move to Chelsea, as the Brazilian winger is set to complete a €15 million transfer to the Premier League club. Gabriel, who is considered one of the top prospects in Brazilian football, will join Chelsea’s pre-season in the United States, with the rest of his family expected to join him soon.
Gabriel’s father expressed his happiness and pride at his son joining one of the world’s top clubs. However, he also mentioned a touch of sadness, knowing that his son will be far from home. He mentioned that his wife and another Brazilian player in the team will support Gabriel during his initial adaptation period, which includes adjusting to a new climate, language, and culture.
Despite the move to Chelsea, it is reported that Gabriel may not be part of the club’s immediate plans. L’Equipe has suggested that he could be loaned out to Ligue 1 side Strasbourg, which would provide him with valuable playing time and experience. This loan move could be facilitated by Chelsea’s American co-owner Todd Boehly, who has recently acquired a share in the French club, expanding his network in European football.
