Chelsea to Swoop for 11-year-old Barcelona Goalkeeper Daniel Cardenas

(This entry was originally published on Thursday, January 1st, 2009)

Chelsea youth chief Frank Arnesen has found something special in an 11-year-old goalkeeper Daniel Cardenas who is currently in ‘Alevin A’ youth side of Spanish giant Barcelona. There is enough indication that Chelsea would jump into a battle with Barcelona to bring Daniel Cardenas at Stamford Bridge youth side. On the other hand, it is pretty understandable that Barcelona would not leave any stone unturned to keep Daniel Cardenas at Barcelona. Moreover, Barcelona must have learnt from their arch-rival Real Madrid who are struggling to bring out quality players from their youth system.

Parents of the young prodigy Daniel Cardenas now have to decide the future of their son who seems to have great talent and potential that has earned attention from two European powerhouses: Chelsea and Barcelona. Reports also have it in the media that Chelsea is now in talk with Barcelona about the 11-year-old young goalkeeper.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is well known for identifying talented kids and has so far been criticized by many for recruiting young boys in Arsenal youth side. In fact, UEFA president Michel Platini was also very critical of Wenger’s youth policy few months back. Now, it seems that Chelsea is also going to walk on Arsenal’s path. In fact, Chelsea’s current no. 1 goalkeeper Petr Cech also started playing football at a tender age of 7 at the youth side of Czech club FC Viktoria Plzen.
