Málaga CF have signed Brazilian attacking midfielder Lucas Piazón on loan from Chelsea FC until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old – who has made three senior appearances for Chelsea, all this term, since arriving from São Paulo FC in 2011 – took part in his first training session with the southern Spanish club today and will be officially presented at La Rosaleda on Thursday. Piazon represented Brazil at Under-15 level and went on to feature at the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico where his country finished fourth.
Having negotiated the UEFA Champions League group stage as Group C winners in their first appearance in the tournament, Málaga face FC Porto in the round of 16 with the first leg at the Estádio do Dragão on 19 February.
