Football News

Chelsea have signed Barcelona winger Josi Quintero, who was rated as one of the most promising players in the Catalan giants’ famed La Masia academy. The 17-year-old published a photo of himself signing a contract on Twitter, which was retweeted by the Ecuadorian Football Federation.

According to the Metro, Arsenal and Lyon were also keen to sign the South American teenager. But it’s Chelsea who have successfully convinced him to quit the Camp Nou for Stamford Bridge.

Barcelona angered

The Metro go on to explain that Barcelona have been left fuming after losing one of their most gifted youngsters, whose speed and dribbling abilities have caught the eye of top European-based scouts.

The La Liga outfit have lost talented youngsters from their academy in the past, including the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique, and they fear that they could be losing another potential superstar in the making.

Antonio Valencia comparisons

Quintero has been compared, perhaps somewhat lazily, to his compatriot Antonio Valencia, who plies his trade with Manchester United.

The youngster is regarded as the most talented player to emerge from Ecuador since the 28-year-old, who is arguably the best winger the South American nation have ever produced.

He announced last week that he was holding talks with the west London outfit - and it now appears that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has got his man.
