Chelsea have taken young Portuguese defender Morais on trial as Jose Mourinho continues to forge links with his homeland.
The Penafiel centre back has been allowed to head for West London to obtain some experience and is likely to be monitored closely by the Premiership
club as he progresses.
Although Chelsea have reportedly been impressed with the youngster, they could take the option of viewing the player as a possible long-term recruit.
