Mauricio Pochettino is not taking a false step and has already been able to sign the player who will be considered a world star in the coming years. Despite the €600 million that Chelsea have spent, they want to apply sporting intelligence and not make a bad deal as the experts consider this season.

And the case of Enzo Fernandez continues to give them plenty to talk about. The €120 million cost of the Argentine midfielder is still on the minds of many fans, as his performances were not what was expected this season and the arrival of the World Cup winner was a disappointment.

For now, the Blues' scouts have snapped up what could be the world-class star the Premier League has been waiting for. They had to travel to the U-20 World Cup being played in Argentina to find the jewel they were so eager to develop him in England.

One situation they will have against him. The 16-year-old could be registered with the team until 2025, since his young age does not allow him to enter the English League and they will wait until he comes of age and progresses further in his growth.

The Ecuadorian jewel that Pochettino has.

Chelsea have just reached an agreement with Independiente del Valle player Kendry Paez for the next few years. He starred for Ecuador at the Under-20 World Cup and will join the Stamford Bridge team in two years' time, although it is hoped that he could be called up to the Ecuadorian senior team.
