Who is Lorran, drawing attention from Manchester United, Chelsea, Brighton?

Chelsea and Manchester United spent big in the summer transfer window of 2023. The clubs added many talented players to their roster, but things are still not working out for them. Brazillian wonderkid Lorran seems like the player who can help the club in these times and improve their position in the league.

The youngster has not been around for a long time, but his skills have already impressed European clubs who are thinking about signing him in the next transfer market.

Manchester United, Brighton reportedly lead in race to sign Lorran

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have had a poor start to the season. The Red Devils currently hold the 9th position in the Premier League, whereas Chelsea’s situation is even worse, and the Blues are in the bottom half at 14th place. The 16-year-old Flamengo player Lorran has caught the clubs’ eye and may try to bag him in the near future.

According to Fabrizio Romano, scouts from United and Chelsea have tracked him down. The Brazilian footballer is being called the next Ronaldinho. He possesses incredible skills and ball control. Lorran has a release clause in his contract worth €50 million. He is associated with Roc Nation Sports Brazil, the agency that is also linked with players like Vinicius Junior and Lucas Paqueta.

Lorran scored his first goal for the club on January 25, 2023, saving his team from a loss after scoring an equalizer against Bangu, making the final score 1-1. The goal was important for the club as well as the AMF, as he became the youngest player ever to score in Flamengo’s history. According to Wikipedia, the player has four appearances for his club, in which he found the back of the net once.

The Flamengo midfielder is now attracting the likes of Chelsea, Brighton, and Manchester United with his impressive performance and game sense. It is too early to predict which club will succeed in signing him, so we have to wait and see where he takes his talents.
