The endless journey of Lucas Piazon has come to an end. Braga has announced the hiring of the 26-year-old Brazilian winger until 2025. The transfer definitively dissociates him from the Chelsea, the club that signed him in 2012 from Sao Paulo with only 16 years. After playing only 3 official matches with the team of Stamford Bridge since then, Piazon he has constantly lived as a loan player.
In 9 years, the Brazilian attacker has played on loan for seven teams and six different leagues (The league, Bundesliga, Eredivise, Serie
TO, Premier League and the First League), become one of the most famous nomads in continental football.
His first destination was Málaga (2013), where he only played 14 games and then flew to the Eredivise to wrap the elastic of the Vitesse (31 matches). He also had an affair in the Bundesliga hand in hand with Eintracht (2014-2015) and then returned to the Premier, where he played on loan first in the Reading and then in the Fulham. In 2019 he had a brief stint in Serie A at Verona (4 matches) before joining the Rio Ave.
In the last month he barely counted for the club, since in four games he was not called up and in one he only played 5 minutes. Braga has made their signing official and thus ends the condition of perpetual nomad of Lucas Piazon at least until 2025. “I am very happy to be a new warrior, every time I have opportunities I will help and I want to be important,” the Brazilian told the club’s official media.
