It would be a transfer that could bring some 'x factor' to the Blues, while reuniting the Brazilian with Tuchel, whom he played under in Paris. That could be a proposition that may tempt the 30-year-old, who has been full of praise for his former manager in the past.
Discussing his relationship with Tuchel back in 2019 to Canal+, he said: “It's a friendship but, at the same time, a huge mutual respect. I respect him as a coach but when we need to talk, we talk.
“I've developed a great affection towards him since the first time we spoke. When you have this great affection for your coach, you give your life on the pitch. For him I will do my best to win."
