Nice, I mean he's being called the next Van Dijk so immediately my thought is they are overhyping him. Lets see how this goes

Let's hope it's not Dick. I liked him in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang but his accent in Mary Poppins was woeful.

Don't want to throw him into the deep end straight away, but looks a prospect for sure. 

Potentially a real coup. 

Also it's confirmed, not a rumor anymore!

I think he's for our development squad for now. But do well there, and Frank will be knocking....

I think it’s really encouraging that young talent now sees Chelsea as an excellent club to play for and fulfil their potential. Pre Mount, Abraham, James, Tomori, CHO, would he have chosen Chelsea over the other big European clubs who were interested? Hopefully with Lampard at the helm we can reap the rewards of a stable structure which promotes youth and adds to the first team with the necessary quality. Exciting times ahead - welcome, Xavier.

He starts first team for me, sick of our lot. 

Until he does a gruff turn in the six yard box or plays a square ball to the opposition, a last Tomori,  and everyone canes him for not being ready. I'm all for loans I just don't understand the current fashion of season long. Why can't we loan until Christmas and reassess then with an option to extend. That way if he's tearing it up we can always bring him back.

Cant see him spending much time in the youth team, with his physical adavantage over players that age, i dont think it would benefit him. 

I think he will be in and around the 1st team, and if he isnt going to get minutes with us this season, he will go out on loan towards the end of the window. 

He looks to have the physical and technical attributes to be one of the best in the world, but the question will be whether he has the mentality and tactical nouse to make reach that level. 

Exciting signing though.

How many players of this age have Barca let go in the past 15 years that they have gone on to regret?

I read an interesting article on him that stated that he come to train with us and wanted to sign with us last year, but we couldn't because of the transfer banned. So maybe the intention was always to go to Barcelona and come back to us this year 🤷‍♂️, plus we are definitely more likely to offer first team football quicker than Barcelona.
