Chelsea appear to have beaten Manchester City to signing of Brazilian wonder kid Nathan, after the teenager flew into London to complete the deal.

Nathan is one of the most talked about youngsters in the game, with his stylish performances for Brazil's junior teams seeing a host of clubs make a play to sign the 19-year-old from Atletico Paranaense.

City are believed to have been chasing Nathan since he caught their eye at the World Under 17 Championships two years ago, with the Manchester club keen to inject some youthful spark into their ageing squad.

Yet Chelsea appear to have lured him into their squad, with the Premier League champions-elect set to confirm the signing imminently.

Nathan will join a host of Brazilian players already at Chelsea, with Oscar, Willian, Filipe Luis, Ramires in Mourinho's squad.
