Chelsea chasing Luton baby star Charlie Patino
The 11-year-old Luton player Charlie Patino is being chased by giant clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.
The wonder boy would cost £10,000 and his parents are weighing up offers from the biggest clubs of the Premier League before taking the final decision.
Moreover, Patino and his family have visited the training grounds.
“We just want what’s best for Charlie, to give him the best chance of being a professional footballer if that is what he wants to do,” said dad Julio, whose parents are both Spanish.
“He is a dedicated boy, he works hard at school, gets good grades and is committed to playing football. He just loves it.”
Julio, who is a supporter of La Liga strugglers Deportivo La Coruna, added: “Charlie doesn’t watch the Spanish football, he analyses it. His mind is ticking away, watching the player movements and asking why they made certain decisions. He is very intelligent. He would say his favourite team is Barcelona and he has definitely been influenced as a player by the Spanish style of football.”
