Chelsea FC transfer news: Quintero confirms Blues switch

Laurence Griffiths

If you were looking for confirmation that Josimar Quintero is definitely a Chelsea player -- now you have it from the man himself (with a hat tip to @GoallineDrama). The former Barcelona youth has tweeted his goodbyes to his old club and revealed that his destination is definitely Stamford Bridge:

Not all transfer have to be protracted and painful (cough Cavani cough). Of course, Quintero's a very young prospect -- 16 year-old wingers generally aren't much good to the first team -- but whenever we can add talent to the organisation we definitely should. Although Chelsea have a reputation in the media for being a place where young players struggle, that doesn't seem to translate into players' decisions. They want to come to Cobham, and a slew of elite youngsters have been making that move for some time now.

Anyway. Genuine transfer news. Hot damn!
