Chelsea told they have signed future superstar in Bertrand Traore

Chelsea have been told they're signed a potential superstar in Bertrand Traore.

The 15 year-old is moving to Chelsea from Auxerre after the Blues beat Manchester United to his signature this week. He had trained with United previously.

Traore was outstanding for Burkina Faso at the U17 World Cup, where his coach Rainer Willfeld said: "He could become a very great player because he can do everything with the ball, he has a good eye, he can play good passes, he has control, he has everything.

“What he is lacking is physical ability to compete with bigger players in a one-on-one situation.

“He can reach any level if he comes into good coaching, people who will look after him correctly and not make him a big player before he is a big player, then I think he can play at any level within five years.”

Burkina Faso’s sports minister Jean-Pierre Palm, announced Chelsea’s capture of the country’s brightest young talent yesterday.

Traore was in Ghana earlier this week to secure his visa ahead of flying to London.
