TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Beat Arsenal To Snap Up Starlet

By on July 22, 2011

Chelsea have struck a deal to sign promising Barcelona starlet Oriol Romeu with the 20-year-old moving to Stamford Bridge for around £4m.

Arsenal have previously been linked with Romeu but Sky Sports claim that a deal is now in place with Chelsea with just the finer details to be finalised before the signing is confirmed.

The Spanish sources also believe a clause will be inserted allowing Barcelona the chance to re-sign the player in 2013 if they so choose.

New Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas tried to capture Romeu while at Porto but it now seems he has got his man with the player travelling to London in the coming days to complete the transfer.

    Just get him with out any buy back clause. If they still want a clause then device a clause according to which they would have to fork out whatever chelsea will be demanding say 30 million as minimum and also try to get some other players from there . I still do not know whether chelsea have really signed gael etock or not?……….

    Pls lets nt include any clause…if Romeu wnts to come…let him come permanently….i hv nt seen him play but i believe for d fact dat he is cmin frm barca am nt worried … But my prblm is chelsea buying a creative midfielder…we need it oooo….pls AVB. Chelsea is a part of my happy life n i dnt feel happy wen other teams beat us comfortably…i think we nid 2 b vry tough b4 d othr team cn b able 2 beat us…i cn see our striking force is vry gud bt we lack those killing n wall brkn passes whch a creativ midfielder possesses 4 d strikers nw 2 finish…am lukn forward 2 c Engr Modric in a blue shirt bcs he cn do it perfectly 4 us… Up blues!

    Thats so typical, Barcalona scum trying to get some sneaky smallprint so they can steal him off you after youve put all the work into making him great! I think you all know why this annoys me as im a gooner.

    watching chelsea pre-season matches, i cant say anything than ‘they were disappointing’ it is just a pity that if the almigthy blues carry on like this we may end up winning noting.so am imploring villa bois to 1 or 2 midfielders who are strong like mikel or essien because lampard is gone unless he ressurate again.blues till i die!
    UP CHELSEA!

    Josh is better now already-why bring in more of the same and to go back to Barca? this makes no sense
