The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are excited about the prospect of signing a future star, but would that move be good for him right now?
If you don’t know who Karamoko Dembele is by now, you must have been living under a rock after he was recently linked with Chelsea.
The 14-year-old is seen as a future superstar eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
He is currently playing his football at Celtic and our landlord thinks it should stay that way.
To put it bluntly, Chelsea ruin younger talents careers.
They have the ability to turn youngsters into fantastic talents, but they never seem to make it any further than that.
The most likely outcome to Dembele joining Chelsea right now would be for him to go out on loan as soon as he turns 16, feature a handful of times for Chelsea during various pre-seasons and then depart from the club in his early 20s.
Now that’s just an educated guess from our landlord but it wouldn’t be surprising if that were to happen.
Celtic have a real talent on their hands right now and this is a crucial time in his development as a player both on the pitch and off it.
If he moves to Chelsea now he’ll likely be offered a ridiculous wage for a 14-year-old and a man that young having that much money doesn’t end well.
Do football a service, Celtic. Keep Dembele at your club or at the very least don’t let him go to Chelsea.
