Nicolás Millán is best known for being the youngest player to represent a Chilean team in football.
Little did Nicolás Millán know that that appearance was going to be the first of only 3 games for 6 years. His substitute appearance for Colo Colo against Santiago Wanderers at the age of fourteen years, nine months and three days.
Since that game he has had unsuccessful loan deals at Argentine sides Club Rivadavia and Atletico Tigre; failing to make a league appearance let alone impact at the 2 sides. Last season he spent the year on loan at Chilean second division side Deportes Naval where he finally got a run in the team and even scored a goal or two.
Dubbed the “Chilean Cristiano Ronaldo” Millan was reported to have trials at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Everton while scoring 4 goals in 3 appearances for Chile’s Under 17 side. Millán once said: “I think my playing style is similar to his (Ronaldo). I enjoy using the flanks and going past defenders, and I’m particularly good at stepovers.”
After 2 seasons playing for Chilean Primera División B side Curicó Unid, Millán moved to newley promoted side Puerto Montt.
