Main Reason I Left Barcelona For Chelsea –Guiu




Chelsea new signing Marc Guiu has explained the main reason why he decided to depart Barcelona for the London club.

The Blues triggered the striker’s £5million release clause and he has now signed a five-year contract with the option of a further year.

“My main reason for wanting to sign for Chelsea was the football and sporting project the club is offering me here,” Guiu was quoted on Fabrizio Romano’s X handle.

“I feel the trust everyone who works at the club is putting in me. The plan here is exciting.”

A Spain U-19 international, Guiu progressed through the ranks at Barcelona’s renowned La Masia academy.

Guiu featured for Barcelona’s first-team in pre-season last year.

He enjoyed a memorable competitive senior debut against Athletic Bilbao as he scored the winner just 23 seconds after coming on.

He was the youngest and fastest debutant to score for Barcelona in LaLiga.

In total, Guiu played seven senior games for Barcelona and scored twice, with his other strike coming against Royal Antwerp in the Champions League.

In addition to Guiu, Chelsea have made two other major signings so far in this transfer window.

Defender Tosin Adarabioyo joined on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Fulham, while youngster Omari Kellyman signed from Aston Villa for £19million.
