Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling extremely happy after hearing from the Daily Mail they have agreed a £2.3 million deal to sign Romanian right-back Cristian Manea.
The Viitorul Constanta defender is only 17-years-old and looks set for a bright future in professional football.
The Mail are reporting that he is expected to sign a five-year deal at the London club, with the view to loaning him out to either Vitesse or Real Mallorca.
Jose Mourinho’s side have seemingly beaten Arsenal to the signing of the defender, who were also interested in a move for the right-back.
Chelsea fans over by the pool table in the Transfer Tavern don’t really know what to make of the news, as the majority of them have never heard of the 17-year-old.
Meanwhile, Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are not overly disappointed to miss out on the virtually unknown defender, with most of them preferring Arsenal signed more experienced, world-class players.
Chelsea fans…. What do you make of this deal? Will the defender just be another player sent out on loan and never return? Let us know your opinions and feelings below!
