Football London reported yesterday that Traore flew into France on Saturday night to finalise his transfer to the Ligue 1 giants, and it now looks as though the deal has been sealed.
As per Football London Chelsea will receive a fee in the region of £16M in exchange for Traore. You wouldn’t put it past us re-signing him for triple that in a few years, he has the potential to go to the very top of the game.
It seems to be a recurring theme at Chelsea, sign a young player, send them out on loan and watch them develop, before cashing-in and reaping the financial rewards. What a shame.
