One of Chelsea’s bright young stars, Juan Castillo, has been one of the club’s key figures amongst the youth sides and played a major role in the the Blues’ run to the UEFA Youth League final last year.
Having initially announced he would be leaving the club at the end of his contract, Chelsea have confirmed that the academy star has performed a dramatic U-turn and signed a new three-year deal to keep him at the club.
After hearing the news, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter and many were understandably excited at knowing Castillo will remain at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.

A versatile midfielder, many fans of the west London side felt they had done well to keep such a fantastic prospect in their hands and even alluded to the 19-year-old’s dribbling qualities as being reminiscent of the recently departed Eden Hazard.
Indeed, some supporters urged the club to sell the side’s current winger options like Willian to give Castillo a chance instead, whilst others felt a loan move away could be the best option for his future development.
Check out some of the reaction of Chelsea fans below:
has such a fluency when he moves on the ball, reminds me of hazard in certain clips

Please sell WILLIAN already. This is a great replacement for him with such a pace.
