From what I understand, he performed quite well in the U-20 Campeonato Sudamericano. I haven't seen him play and I doubt anybody else here has, but my stance on players like this are generally that you should grab as many as possible and let attrition do its job. If one or two blow up and become first team players, then you've struck gold. If not, the total expenditure is a drop in the bucket.

I look forward to having another player that can rotate in to give Mata a rest, only to pale in comparison and force us to bring on Mata in the 2nd half to win us the game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but in all seriousness it's always nice to see us bring more quality youngsters in.

It sounds pretty cruel but that's exactly what Arsenal, Man U and all the Spanish and German clubs do with foreign youngsters, although Spanish and German clubs and their FAs spend a lot more time and money developing and promoting their domestic youngsters, too.

I see this as asset collection for the purpose of profit making. Chelsea needs to keep the books balanced for FFP.

I bet they have a long-term plan to buy lots of youngsters, loan them out to develop and when their value doubles or triples, you sell the player and that solidifies your business model.

We have 22 players out on loan, I think most of them are increasing their value. Obviously all of them will not play for Chelsea but that doesn't mean they won't benefit the club.

Chilean starlet Cristian Cuevas says he has agreed a deal to join Chelsea and expects to move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Cuevas trained with the Stamford Bridge club on a trial basis in 2012, and a transfer that will see the midfielder move permanently from O'Higgins has reportedly been agreed.

With Cuevas likely to play for his country at this summer's Under-20World Cupspacer.gif in Turkey, the youngster expects to join up with theChelseaspacer.gif squad around the start of pre-season training.

Having impressed at the South American Under-20 championships in January, Cuevas' stock rose among top European clubs and Chelsea have now made their move to get his signature.

"I'm very happy," Cuevas told El Tipografo. "This week everything was finalised and I'll join in the middle of the year.

"Chelsea were following me for more than a year. What I wanted happened, which was joining this club.

"The Under 20 World Cup will come in the middle of the year and I hope to be in the squad and play some minutes as I really want to. If I play the World Cup, I'll then go to England. Otherwise I'll go there in June."

Going by the clubs ongoing "loan, loan, loan" policy regarding the youngsters at the club, I assume this lad will be forked out somewhere next season.

Can't believe there is such a saturation of young talent at the club.

 

You cant believe the club is actually letting players play first team football in leagues with a lot higher quality then the U21? Yeah that sure is mind blowing :sad:
