Chelsea academy product Dominic Solanke has sealed a move to Premier League rivals Liverpool, much to the fury of the Chelsea faithful who had high expectations for the talented youngster.
Solanke impressed for England U20 as they lifted the U20 World Cup after a 1-0 victory against Venezuela in the final in South Korea, to ensure the nation’s first World Cup win since the senior side did it in 1966.
Solanke was in great form all through the tournament and ended as the golden ball winner, an award that has been won by the likes of Sergio Aguero, Paul Pogba, Lionel Messi and the legendary Diego Maradona.
This has further infuriated Chelsea fans, as they are unhappy with Chelsea management for letting yet another youngster leave.
We've done all the hardwork for Liverpool to reap the benefit… Solanke 😢😢

Chelsea selling Solanke is awful, £3 million aswell in today's market is a good buy for Liverpool at least he will get played more.
