On Marco van Ginkel:
It seems like Wikipedia has provided us the answer that Marco van Ginkel has now signed for Chelsea. The current holder of “Dutch Talent of the Year” will only make our midfield stronger and stronger. With the age of 20, in time he will only prove to be more and more dangerous or so i guess!!
