Chelsea interested in Serie A teenager
The Fiorentina teenager was given the bemusing name after his father wanted to pay homage to his favourite players.
“Yes, I have got a big name but I don’t find my name strange. My dad wanted to honour the players he enjoyed watching and he was a big fan of Maradona and Socrates.
“I try to absorb the best of all of them into my game,” said the 18-year-old.
Chelsea are not the only team said to be interested in the youngster, with West Ham and several other European clubs also looking into his situation.
Meanwhile, John Terry will be offered a big money chance to end his career in the Middle East.
A number of clubs in the United Arab Emirates are said to be interested in the centre-back, whose future remains unclear at Stamford Bridge after falling out of favour with interim boss, Rafael Benitez.
The former Liverpool manager appears to have made David Luiz and Gary Cahill his preferred centre-back pairing.
Al Nasr, Al Jazira and Al-Ain are just a few of the clubs from the super-rich UAE that could afford to sign the Chelsea legend.
