Chelsea signs super talent Kendry Páez

Chelsea FC have secured the services of Ecuador’s top talent Kendry Páez. The English club announced this officially. The 16-year-old comes to Stamford Bridge from Independiente del Valle for €20m.

This puts Páez in fifth place among the most expensive U17 transfers in history.

The midfielder is considered by far his country’s greatest talent. Páez has already set a number of records, including becoming the youngest player to score at a U20 World Cup.

The two Bundesliga clubs BVB and Bayer Leverkusen are said to have shown interest in the teenager.

Páez is not yet hiring directly at Stamford Bridge. He initially stays with Independiente del Valle. The transfer to London will not take place until he is of legal age. That will be early May 2025.
