Brazilian wonderkid Nathan has confirmed that he has signed for Premier League champions Chelsea.

A deal for Nathan has been in place for several weeks, as revealed by sundayworld.com last month, yet the formalities have not been completed as he has sealed his move to London.

As tends to be the way in the modern game, 19-year-old starlet Nathan confirmed his move on Instagram, with these comments attached to some images of his day signing for the Blues.

"A dream is coming true," he wrote.

"First of all I want to thank God for always lighting my way, my dad who always believed in my talent and was a real warrior while helping me to reach my goals, my family and friends who always supported me... 

"And I am also thankful to Club Atletico Paranaense, which was part of this journey and where I played for 6 years of my career.

"Thank you Chelsea for trusting in me, I will do my best to support my team on reaching new achievements. WE ARE ALL BLUE'

It is anticipated that Nathan may be sent out on loan by Chelsea next season as he looks to acclimatise to European football, yet the Blues can be pleased to secure the services of a player who has also attracted the attentions of Manchester City.
