Blues closing in on a deal for Manea Cristian…
Chelsea are on the verge of completing a deal to sign 17-year-old defender Manea Cristian, reports the Daily Star.
The fullback currently plays in Romania for boyhood club Viitorul, and has appeared in all but one of their fixtures this term.
A £2.3m transfer fee has been agreed, and Cristian is expected to sign a Chelsea contract in January, before joining Vitesse or Malaga on loan.
Cristian enjoys bombing on from right-back, and prides himself on his excellent technical ability and composure on the ball.
