Joining Chelsea is a dream come true for me

Chelsea goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina says his move to Chelsea still doesn’t feel real to him.

Slonina joined Chelsea from the Chicago Fire after the 2022 MLS season and has featured prominently for the club’s development squad. 

The 19 year old goalkeeper is highly-rated, with many believing he can be among the best shot-stoppers in the world someday.

“It’s honestly been a dream come true,” he told Chelsea’s official website ahead of his birthday on Monday. “It still doesn’t really feel real when I’m training with some of the best players in the world and learning from them. I think it’s been great for me to come over here and get better as a person and as a player on and off the field.”
