On Sunday, and in the games preceding the U20 World Cup Final, the soon to be former young Chelsea striker, Dominic Solanke, played a prominent part in England`s success story.

Now I say soon to be former Chelsea player because Solanke has opted to leave Chelsea when his current contract expires and join Liverpool.

Solanke has exercised his right to leave after being told by the Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, he will get first team opportunities, something Chelsea couldn`t promise him.

But, although Solanke will, technically, be a free-agent, Chelsea will, because the player is still just 19-years-of-age, be entitled to compensation.

Following on from Solanke winning the ‘Golden Boot` at the U20 World Cup, following in the footsteps of some of the greats of the game, notably Messi and Maradona, the Liverpool Echo are confident that the compensation fee Liverpool will be ordered to pay Chelsea will not increase.

The fee will be set by a tribunal but how much Chelsea will get remains something of a mystery, perhaps Liverpool will be forced to pay a few more pounds on the back of Solanke`s success a the U20 World Cup, in South Korea!
