Chelsea set to complete signing of super talented midfielder

Antonio Conte

Chelsea continues with its plans to strengthen its squad ahead of the 2016-2017 season, with the rumors of a possible transfer of Juan Familia Castillo to the Stamford Bridge getting attention from football fans all over the world.

The Ajax U17 midfielder is only 16 years old, but his performance on the pitch leaves managers of big teams bewildered.

He may find himself in a Blue Jersey for Chelsea in the coming few months, and his versatility will make it possible for Antoine Conte, the incoming Chelsea manager to rotate his squad whenever the need arises. Juan can play as a central midfielder and a left winger.

Having scouted the teenager for some time now, Chelsea are eager to close in on a deal to transfer the player to the Blues in the coming few weeks. With Manchester United also interested, Chelsea hopes that the player agrees on a deal with them and snubs their rivals.

Juan Familia Castillo is the captain of the Netherlands under-16 team and rumors of his transfer comes after just a few months after Wim Jonk, Ajax’s academy coach left the club.

He joins a group of other young players who are also on their way out. He has already represented his country nine times, scoring one goal. He currently wears the number 10 shirt for Netherlands and his move to Chelsea will give him an opportunity to make huge strides in his career development.

He will join Chelsea’s U18 team and meet the likes of Jacob Maddox, who recently joined the team.
