In an interview with gianlucadimarzio.com, Kenedy’s intermediary Eduardo Valdes said “In the Under 20 World Cup we saw a new start for Kenedy, half of Europe is now following him”.
“As of today I can say Juve is interested but Fluminense asked for a lot: €12/13 million. There was a contact with Chelsea, through Deco, now his agent, it was only a timid approach though, not yet a formal offer.”
It’s thought he’s also grabbed the attention of Roberto Mancini’s Inter Milan, but they will struggle to complete with Juve and the English sides financially.
The youngster made his Fluminense debut in 2013, and since then his stock has continued to rise.
