Chelsea line up move for wonderkid

quintero.jpgWe are still getting over the Luis Suarez biting incident at the Football Transfer Tavern as Chelsea fans divert their anger by looking at the claim by 101 Great Goals who think that the club are set to make a play for Barcelona youngster Josimar Quintero.

The 16-year-old has impressed the Blues’ staff so much that the club have offered him a staggering 120,000 euros per season – a massive ten times what he is currently on for Barcelona and are determined to land the player dubbed the next Andres Iniesta by the Catalan press.

The player has also been described as hardworking, humble and very dedicated to becoming a top class player and has attracted interest from not only Chelsea but also Andre Villas-Boas’ Tottenham side and fellow London club Arsenal yet as one punter claims, it seems that given the rave reviews of the player thus far, Barcelona would be fools to let the young player leave and given the Ecuadorian has lived in Catalonia since the tender age of five he must possess at least some affection for the club.

Not to mention the fact Barcelona have a far greater reputation for bringing young players through than any of the sides also interested in the young player.

Will Chelsea land the young talent? Rate this rumour below.
