Brazilian expert: Lucas Piazon will be Chelsea star

Brazilian expert Sabatino Durante says Lucas Piazon goes to Chelsea in good form.

The former Sao Paulo midfielder is moving to Chelsea after playing for Brazil in the U17 World Cup.

Durante told calciomercato.com: "He played a good World Cup, although did not make the difference as some expected.

"He's a great player, he should not have to prove anything to anyone. In some games he seemed to have his head already at Chelsea, but in principle I think he did well.

"He wants to play as a second striker, but I think we will see him in Europe a few yards back as a playmaker like Kaka.

"Too bad he is not coming to Italy, Juventus mishandled the negotiations."
