Chelsea’s Brazilian star close to leaving the club on loan amidst interest from PSG

Chelsea’s Kenedy could be set for another loan spell away from Stamford Bridge as he looks close to completing a move to Newcastle United, according to Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old spent a few months on loan at St. James’ Park last season, chipping in with a couple of goals and provided in 13 Premier League games.

Chelsea will not stand in the way of the youngster since he must receive adequate first-team football next season and Newcastle seem like an ideal destination.

The report claims that Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich have all kept tabs on the 22-year-old and were keen on signing him temporarily this summer.

Kenedy did not play a single minute of Premier League football with us last season but joining Newcastle again could be a win-win for all sides involved.

The Brazilian would find it tough to play regularly at Stamford Bridge but he did enjoy his time at Newcastle.

Rafa Benitez is proficient at extracting the best out of young players. Hence, another season under his watchful eyes might just be the perfect tonic to ensure Kenedy improves and develops further.
