Julia Bartel, a Barca wonderkid, is set to join Blues in a summer move as Chelsea prepare to replace Emma Hayes.

where she helped the team win back-to-back league titles, appears to have made a wise financial decision.Bartel’s first-team opportunities have been limited because he plays in a star-studded midfield for a dominating Barcelona squad. She did, however

, excel when called upon to step up, playing the entire ninety minutes in the team’s most recent 4-2 league triumph against Levante, which coincidentally came only four days after the unexpected 1-0 home loss to Chelsea in the Champions League.
