The Rising Star: Lorran Lucas
On the lively streets of Brazil, amidst the carnival vibes and relentless passion for football, a star is brewing. At the tender age of 17, Lorran Lucas looks set to continue Brazil’s legacy of producing world-class talents, right from the heart of Rio’s Flamengo.
A Glimpse into the Flamengo Prodigy
Lorran, the Flamengo number ten, despite his few senior outings, is already making ripples in the football world. With only four senior appearances and a single goal to his name, the young attacking midfielder is drawing attention from some of the English Premier League’s top clubs. Manchester United and Chelsea are amongst the keen observers.
A significant point to note is Lorran’s €50 million release clause, quite a statement for such a young player. But, as we’ve seen time and again, Brazil has always been a fertile ground for emerging talents. And Chelsea, in particular, seems to have a knack for discovering Brazilian gems. The Blues’ recent acquisitions include Andrey Santos from Vasco da Gama and the duo, Angelo Gabriel and Deivid Washington from Santos.
Words from the Transfer Guru
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, one of the most trusted voices in the transfer community, there’s quite a buzz around the youngster. Sharing his insights on his YouTube channel, Romano stated:
“Born in 2006, remember the name: Lorran. He is a very talented offensive midfield player. He signed this week with [a] new agency, Roc Nation Sports Brazil, it’s the agency of Jay-Z, a very important agency.”
“He [Lorran] already has a release clause in his contract. From what I’m hearing, it’s €50m. So, the clause is there, people in Brazil believe that he is going to be the next big thing coming to Europe from Brazil.”
But what does this mean for Man Utd and Chelsea? Romano suggests,
“What I can tell you is that Man Utd and Chelsea both sent their scouts to keep an eye on the player recently. Let’s see if they will decide to bid, let’s see if they will decide to enter the race with an official proposal. At the moment, it is just [a] scouting activity, but these two clubs are monitoring and keeping an eye on Lorran.”
