Viitorul CEO confirms defender Cristian Manea has signed for Chelsea [Highlights Reel]

Chelsea appear to have completed their first bit of business of the summer, signing 17 year old Romanian defender Cristian Manea.

The CEO of struggling Eastern European club FC Viitorul Constanța confirmed the transfer to the media on Thursday morning.

The versatile, ball playing defender became Romania’s youngest ever senior international in 2014, playing the full 90 minutes against Albania as a fresh faced 16 year old.

A right back by trade, Cristian Manea is reportedly to join Vitesse on loan for the 2015/16 season.

The young Romanian joins the large ranks of talented youth signed on at Chelsea Football Club. Few are yet to actually make the step up to the first team.
