Chelsea have consistently produced some of the finest young talents from their academy, and most recently, Mason Mount and Reece James have had a tremendous impact with the first team in a short period.
Tino Livramento is turning out to be a standout in the youth set-up, and his impressive performances have caught the eyes of Europe’s top clubs.
AC Milan and RB Leipzig are looking to seize the exciting talent from the Blues’ grip this summer.
The 18-year-old has been representing the Blues since he joined the U-9 side and his excellent form in recent years indicates that he is not too far away from getting enough spotlight.
In the 2020-21 season, the English teenager racked up a total of 3 goals and 13 assists, and his traits belong entirely to a modern full-back.
Deployed as a right-back, he doesn’t shy away from joining the attack with sheer pace and being the creative outlet of the team.
The reason for his explosive pace could be due to the fact that he is a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I always looked up to Cristiano Ronaldo. The way he plays the game with no fear and so much confidence really inspired me. He plays the game like no one else and is a machine.
“To still be scoring the number of goals that he is now is astonishing, but it is a result of his work ethic and willingness to stay at the top of the game and prove that he is the best. Also, for me having Portuguese blood, he inspires me to make my family proud.
“I really aspire to be a role model for younger footballers like Ronaldo was for me.”
The English youngster also referred to club legends Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard as his idols.
“I looked up to players such as Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard. They signify what it means to be a Chelsea player, and the standards they set were world-class.”
Livramento’s trajectory as an academy starlet is astonishing, and he looks more than ready to make his jump into the first team – which ultimately lies in the hands of Tuchel.
