The Blues have created a thriving youth system at Stamford Bridge…
Chelsea are tracking the progress of Valencia under 16’s star Carlos Badal, reports the Daily Mirror.
The youngster is yet to make an appearance for the first team at the Mestalla, and if any move to London were to happen it is likely he would go in to the youth system. Since the dawn of Financial Fair Play the Blues have used their academy to raise money in order to finance deals for ready made stars.
The sales of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne in the last transfer window almost paid for the signings of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas for the starting XI.
Even more recently they sold Thorgan Hazard to Borussia Moenchengladbach for a hefty profit.
Badal could be used in this manner in a few years, or could also be eventually brought in to the first team like Thibaut Courtois and Kurt Zouma.
