Official | Nantes sign Barcelona midfielder

Nantes today confirmed on Twitter that they had completed the capture of 19-year-old Theo Chendri from FC Barcelona.

The young midfielder has opted to try his hand at Ligue 1 club Nantes rather than wait for his chance at Barcelona, where he spent the past four years of his career.

Chendri has made a name for himself in the UEFA Youth League, and if his performances in that and his reputation are anything to go by, Chendri may find himself being a star for Nantes.

For the moment, however, Chendri will have to work in the Nantes reserve team, but it may not be long until we see the midfielder in Ligue 1.
