Portugal Under-21 international Diego Moreira has completed a move to Chelsea from Benfica.

The winger, whose father Almami was a Guinea-Bissau international, joined Benfica from Standard Liege in 2020 and played an important role in the club’s 2022 UEFA Youth League triumph. The 18-year-old grabbed two assists in the final, which saw Salzburg defeated 6-0.  

Moreira featured regularly for Benfica B last term having already made his senior debut. That came against Pacos de Ferreira in May 2022.

The winger is currently representing his country at the European Under-21 Championship and has featured against the Netherlands and Belgium. 

Welcome to Chelsea, Diego!
