Is Jean Chera on his way out of Santos before playing a single game?

15-year-old midfielder, Jean Chera, has stunned Santos by announcing that he’s leaving the Vila Belmiro. The much coveted teenager, who turns 16 in May, was expected to sign professional papers with the club he’s been with since he was a ten-year-old.
The player’s father, Celso Chera, is believed to have been asking Santos for a salary of around US$45,000 per month for the teenager rising to US$60,000 in his second year as a pro and then US$78,000 in his third. Santos claim they were prepared to offer the player US$18,000 per month.
Unsatisfied with the Vila Belmiro club’s response, Celso Chera is travelling to Europe this weekend to negotiate with a number of teams that are believed to have already made offers for the youngster.
Santos and Brazil star Neymar, was rumoured to be earning US$12,000 for his first professional contract in 2008. Paulo Henrique Ganso, who was not regarded as anything exceptional at the start of his career, was getting just US$600.

    his father has to be careful with him he seems like he is good but asking for that sort of money so quickly is insane. Celso should be able to wait for 3 more years

    Since he was 13 yrs old, the club Santos FC, has been paying 10.000 euros monthly to his dad, because he was too young to sign a contract.

    I heard about he’s going to Genoa…If he really do that, will end up punished by FIFA.

    And his dad, will ruin hiss career, all the other clubs will be aware of it.

    I am a soccer agent and lawyer in the UK.
