Chelsea to sign Cristian Cuevas

17-year-old Chilean star Cristian Cuevas is a target for Chelsea. The young midfielder will join the Blues in the summer for a fee of around £2.8 million, rising to £3.5 million after 2 years depending on appearances.

Chelsea have been monitoring the player for two years and are now ready to make their move, a deal confirmed by the player's agent: "The negotiations are very advanced with Chelsea. There are still a few details, but the situation is very advanced.

"We have been working on this for a while, the idea is that players can leave Chile and be successful.

"Chelsea have been following him for a couple of years, and the offer was made due to his good performances."
