Chelsea striker Lucas Piazon has joined Portuguese side Braga after ten years at Stamford Bridge, with just one feature in the Premier League.
Piazon joined the Blues from Sao Paulo in 2011, but he was only eligible for a work permit to start in January 2012.
As the longest serving player at Stamford Bridge, the Brazilian striker only made just three senior appearances for the Blues which all came nine years ago.
Roberto Di Matteo was n charge of the Blues then when Lucas Piazo got his only Premier League game for Chelsea.
Due to lack of playing time at Chelsea, Piazo had loan spells at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt, Reading, Fulham, Chievo and Rio Ave.
But he was eventually unveiled as a Braga player on a permanent deal.
Portuguese club Braga confirmed the signing from Chelsea stressing that the Brazilian will be given all the supports he needs to shine.
“Lucas Piazon is the new signing for SC Braga. The attacking midfielder played in Liga NOS this season with Rio Ave and has signed for the club until 2025.
“The 26-year-old has played in most major European leagues. Lucas Piazon is SC Braga’s seventh signing this season.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea are currently ninth in the Premier League with 26 points after 17 games played so far this term.
