Chelsea talent Mbuyamba celebrates promotion to the first team

Chelsea talent Mbuyamba celebrates promotion to the first team, but who is the Blues' next van Dijk?

Chelsea talent Xavier Mbuyamba has taken to social media to celebrate winning a spot in Thomas Tuchel’s first team setup.

Who is Xavier Mbuyamba?

Mbuyamba, 19, is a Dutch central defender.

The youngster is a product of the MVV Maastricht youth system, where he began to attract the attention of scouts across the continent by making his senior debut at the age of just 16.

In the end, after 10 more appearances, it was Barcelona who beat the competition to snag the Mbuyamba signature, luring the defender to Catalunya to link up with the club’s famous La Masia academy.

However, to say that the Blaugrana’s plans for the teenager did not go exactly as planned would be to put it lightly.

Mbuyamba’s stay at the Camp Nou, notably, lasted just 12 months, after disagreements among club executives about its development.

In turn, after a series of broken promises, the Dutchman saw his contract broken last summer.

This, of course, opened the door for other suitors to join in, and Chelsea, which had been forced to end their previous interest in their services due to the club’s transfer ban, quickly rushed in.

Mbuyamba went on to put pen to paper on a 3-year contract in West London:

Despite his somewhat odd stint in Barcelona, ​​the addition of the stopper was seen as a major blow for Chelsea, with Mbuyamba sporting a host of impressive defensive traits.

In fact, the 19-year-old’s height (6ft 5) and his skill with the ball have even seen him win early. comparisons Liverpool stalwart Virgil van Dijk.

‘Truly blessed’

So it should come as no great surprise to hear that this weekend Mbuyamba’s talent has been rewarded by Thomas Tuchel.

Of course, it is common knowledge that Chelsea were looking for defensive reinforcements throughout the summer period, and that Sevilla star Jules Kounde was very heated. inclined for a Stamford Bridge switch.

In the end, however, such a move did not materialize.

And now, it appears that Tuchel may have identified an internal alternative.

On his personal social media accounts, Mbuyamba confirmed that he has been called up to the first team setup in West London, an opportunity that he seems to be eager to make the most of:
