“Joining the club after his 18th birthday, Paez has already established a reputation as one of the most creative young talents in South America with his skillful dribbling, great vision and ability to break through opposition defenses through passing,” the club said.
Fabricio Romano, a reporter specializing in the transfer market, said, “Chelsea will pay Paes about 20 million euros (about 27.9 billion won) as a transfer fee and even a bonus.”
Paes made his debut this year with his current team and also scored a debut goal, becoming the youngest player in the Ecuadorian first league to hold the record for debut goals. He is currently playing his 6th adult stage this season, and on May 1, he participated in the Copa Libertadores, a South American Champions League, and made his intercontinental debut against the prestigious Brazilian club Corincias.
Paez’s talent shone at the CONMEBOL U-17 Copa America held in Ecuador in April.
In the first round of the group stage, Paes led the team to advance to the next round with 4 matches and 3 assists. In the second round, it shined even more.
After failing to play his first game due to a suspension from the previous match, he recorded offensive points in the second round matches against Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela.
In 4 games, he scored 2 goals and 3 assists, leading Ecuador to finish second and qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup scheduled for this year.
Furthermore, Páez participated in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, currently underway in Argentina, along with his two-year-old brothers. He was also noted for his tremendous talent in his month-long banquet.
In Group B, against the United States, Slovakia and Fiji, Páez scored 1 goal and 2 assists against Slovakia and Fiji, contributing to the second place in the group and advancing to the round of 16.
Paes, who also started in the round of 16 match against South Korea on the 2nd, assisted Justin Quero’s comeback goal in the 36th minute of the first half when Lee Young-jun and Bae Jun-ho scored consecutive goals. Although he was eliminated, he received a lot of attention with 1 goal and 3 assists in the skipped competition.
