Chelsea set to sign Marc Guiu

Chelsea are reportedly closing in on signing 18-year-old Spanish wonderkid Marc Guiu from Barcelona this summer.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have reached a verbal agreement with Marc Guiu, and they will now trigger the exit clause in his Barcelona contract to get the deal done.

The 18-year-old Barcelona wonderkid has a €6 million release clause in his contract, and Chelsea are ready to pay up. Barcelona will be thoroughly disappointed with his departure, but they are powerless to stop him from leaving because of the release clause in his contract.

The Blaugrana would have hoped to keep the teenage sensation at the club and extend his contract. But the player has chosen to accept the proposal from Chelsea instead. Chelsea impressed the player with the sporting and the financial aspects of their proposal. The 18-year-old will now look to continue his development with ample first-team action in English football.

Chelsea need to groom Marc Guiu properly

The 18-year-old needs to play regularly to continue his development, and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea are prepared to give him those opportunities. He cannot afford to sit on the bench at a big club at this stage of his career.

If Chelsea can nurture him properly, they could have a future star on their hands. The 18-year-old could prove to be a major bargain for Chelsea in the long run. Signing a player of his potential for €6 million represents an excellent business, and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea groom him properly.

The Blues have not been at their best in the recent seasons, and they need to improve the overall squad to bounce back strongly and get back to the top of English football. Signing players like Marc Guiu will certainly set them up for the future.

The young attacker scored twice for the Barcelona first team last season, and he will hope to make his mark in England as well. He could get opportunities in the cup games in England next season. Although he might not be ready to lead the line for Chelsea every week, he is certainly good enough for the first team. Increased exposure will help him adapt to the league quickly and help him build his confidence and form.
