GOODISON NEWS 🔵 Everton could exploit ‘unrivaled talent factory’ with 777 Partners influence

Everton could be in line to exploit the “unrivalled talent factory” that is Brazil, alongside some of the world’s biggest clubs, if the 777 Partners takeover is given the all-clear.

The Financial Times [12 February] reported on the progress of Brazilian football towards becoming one of the frontiers of global football, with their exceptional youth production one of the keys to that progress.

It is the consistent rate of excellent young players coming out of Brazil that has seen multi-club models flock to Brazilian clubs, including the City Football Group (Manchester City), Eagle Football Holdings (Crystal Palace), and 777 Partners.

777 Partners takeover would boost Everton in more ways than one

Of course, the financial aspect of the takeover has been the main talking point since 777 agreed to purchase Farhad Moshiri’s 94.1% stake in the club, but the multi-club links, especially in Brazil, could be a huge boost.

Brazil has produced superstar players, the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, who all went to Spain, but also names such as Lucas Paqueta, Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus, who made their way to the Premier League.

Historically, these players have been immediately snapped up by clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona – and that can still be the case, such as with Madrid’s £60million signing of Endrick from Palmeiras – but there is now an opportunity provided by multi-club models to exploit that market.

777’s ownership of Vasco da Gama in the Brazilian Serie A could be used to provide Everton with a direct tap into that market of young superstars coming through the various academies across Brazil.

Josh Wander is the face of 777 Partners who are hoping to complete their takeover of Everton.

Crystal Palace saw the benefits of that when they were able to pull off the signing of Matheus Franca from Flamengo in the summer despite interest from Chelsea and Real Madrid, thanks in large part to owner John Textor’s Eagle Football Holdings who have roots in Brazil with Botafogo.

While Franca didn’t play for Textor’s club, it was the base in Brazil and the understanding of that market that allowed the South London club to pull off the deal – and if 777 have their way, Everton could be in that conversation.

The ongoing takeover progress has taken longer than anybody initially expected, with 777 forced to fund the club via loans for now, and concerns have continued to rise – but it’s important to look at the positives they could offer.
