Young Pedro Lima has put pen to paper on a deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers. It was initially believed that the youngster is on his way to Chelsea after a deal was agreed. Wolves struck in the last moment and hijacked the deal and were able to sign the young player and went on to mock the Chelsea side. 

Wolves put out a video of Pedro Lima signing the contract with a picture of Fabrizio Romano’s tweet announcing his deal with Chelsea. It has come to light that the deal was possible due to fellow Brazilian star Matheus Cunha who persuaded Lima to the Molineux. 

The young right-back shot to fame with his performances for his side Sport Recife where he played 13 games and scored 1 goal. That caught the attention of the Blues but Wolves have won the race for the transfer. 

Wolves star Matheus Cunha comments on Pedro Lima

After the announcement was made official, Matheus Cunha was the first to speak about the youngster's move to England. In an interview, the Brazilian star praised the youngster and spoke highly about his talents. 

“Pedro Lima is a talent, he has a bright future. He is from Paraiba who comes to Recife and has a very similar story to me. I wish him the best”. These comments were made before Lima made his move to Wolves on Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, the Wolves sporting director while speaking to the media said, “I'm really happy we've been able to add Pedro to the first-team squad. There was lots of competition for him, but we've been working on bringing him to Wolves for a while now, and he's fully invested in our project.”

The sporting director also said, “He's a person with huge ambition, but Gary and the coaches know where he wants to get to and they will be working with him – like they do all our players – to be better and improve. He has a massive desire to be the best player he can be and we're going to help him meet his goals.” 

Finally ending his thoughts on the youngster the sporting director said, "Through his attitude, through his work on the pitch, his work in the gym and the way he looks after himself, I expect him to be really competitive and push the players who might be ahead of him at the moment, but in Nelson (Semedo), I think there's no better right-back for him to learn from.”
