Premier League side Wolves, have taunted Chelsea in a video announcing the signing of Brazilian star Pedro Lima.

Chelsea were favourites to sign the young Brazilian, with reports claiming at some point that Chelsea had reached an agreement to sign the talented teenager.

Wolves eventually hijacked the deal, and the 18-year-old has signed a five-year deal at Molineux with an option of a further year.

Wolves have spent around £8.5m to sign the highly-rated teenager after he made 26 appearances for Palmeiras in his first senior season.

Lima burst onto the scene for Brazil’s youth team at last year’s U17 World Cup, featuring in all five of the country’s games, where he impressed.

Wolves mocked Chelsea as they posted a video on X to confirm Lima’s arrival at their club.

In the video, the viewer steps into ‘agent’ Matheus Cunha’s office and watches him finalise the transfer while laughing at a story suggesting Chelsea had already agreed a deal.

Wolves may have signed Pedro Lima, but Chelsea’s signing of Estevao Willian from Palmeiras is seen as a bigger deal in Brazil.
