Who Is Andrey Santos, Age, Height, New Chelsea Contract Details
Born on May 3, 2004, Andrey Santos is currently 18 years old and plays as the centre midfielder for Vasco da Gama. He is 1.76 m (5 ft 9 in).
Santos was first introduced to futsal at the age of four to shed weight. He rapidly fell in love with the sport and started as a defender, but it was quickly realised that his skills were squandered.
Santos was switched to midfield in the Vasco academy. He has acknowledged that he welcomed the change since it gave him more opportunities to contribute to goal scoring, while his mother rejoiced at what she saw as an increase in worth.
Santos made his senior debut as a 17-year-old in March 2021, and he later started for the first time that season, but the event was overshadowed by booing from the crowd as Vasco failed to make it back to Brazil’s top division.
Santos hasn’t looked back since boss Ze Ricardo gave the midfielder a starting spot permanently to usher in a new era. The midfielder had a fantastic year in 2022, breaking the record for the club’s youngest goal scorer when he scored against Nautico in June. Santos debuted for Brazil’s Under-16s in 2019 and has subsequently played for the Under-18s and Under-20s at the international level.
There is no information related to Andrey Santos parents and their names are currently unknown. There is also no information regarding his dating life.
Santos will cost Chelsea £17.5million and Vasco Da Gama will received 70% and the player will receive 30% of the money from the deal. Santos had earlier signed a contract extension with Vasco in September which keeps him tied to the club until 2027 and included a €50m (£43.8m) release clause.
