Chelsea sign 17-year old winger Josi Quintero from Barcelona

Chelsea sign 17 year old winger Josi Quintero from BarcelonaThe 17-year old Ecuadorian had confirmed it a few weeks back, and by signing the contract, it’s now official: Chelsea have signed Josi Quintero from Barcelona.

The Ecuadorian winger tweeted the pictures of himself signing his new contract with The Blues, expressing his delight at signing for ‘this great club’.

Quintero has long been deemed on of La Masia’s hottest prospects, but like so many of the Barcelona youth academy products, he clearly felt the need to make a move away from the Catalan giants to have a realistic chance of breaking into first team football (though that will also require time and patience at Chelsea!).

It’s unlikely Quintero will see much, or indeed any first team football in his first year in England, rather, he’ll need time to adjust culturally and in football terms.
