“I don’t know if we are going to have such a beastly talent in my life again like Kendry Paez,” he told AS. “He is a boy who, if he learns to live in professionalism, he can be, for me, if not Ballon d’Or, be very close to being Ballon d’Or in the next, six, seven or eight years.
“I think he can be one of the greats in the world. He has it all. He is a guy who is super prepared for success. I think we are doing a great job. Hopefully in July 2025 he can arrive with all the credentials to be one of Chelsea’s important players, which is what we are working towards.”
