Chelsea sign another AM!


Recommended Posts

Bertrand Traore, who arrives from Association Jeunes Espoirs De Bobo-Dioulasso, has signed a four-and-a-half year deal

Chelsea have signed teenage Burkino Faso international Bertrand Traore on a four-and-a-half year deal.

Traore, who made his international debut as a 15 year-old, has long been on the Blues' radar and impressed during their pre-season tour of Asia, when the attacking midfielder scored a spectacular goal in an 8-1 thrashing of the Indonesia All Stars.

Mourinho has consistently failed to develop young players throughout his career. He's spoken this time of how he's matured as a coach so we'll see if this changes.

Not sure about that tbh.

Did he not throw in Varne at Madrid while dropping guys like Pepe?

He also liked to use Mikel who was pretty young when at Chelsea first time around iirc.

The problem is he has been at clubs like Madird and Chelsea who have the means to be able to spend millions on proven world class players so of course he did so which makes it even harder for young guys coming in.

Many of the young players Chelsea have signed over the years like Kakuta, Piazon ect have not really looked that good when at other clubs either. I think the problem has been Chelsea's recruitment at youth level and obviously the buy buy buy mentality.
