Chelsea have signed three brothers, each from Luton Town, for a total value that could top £1 million should they play in the club's first team. 

To be precise, these three latest acquisitions are 12-year-old twins Rio and Cole Dasilva, and 13-year-old Jay Dasilva. These three brothers have been part of Luton's football academy since the age of seven. It is the first time that three brothers have been signed by the same club at the same time. 

Not only is this deal the first of its kind, but it also represents what Chelsea are striving towards. That is, to build a strong foundation for the future and not only inject cash into the transfer market. Chelsea, and more recently Manchester City, have been labelled as clubs who have "bought" trophies by targeting key football players and acquiring them for large sums of money. 

Perhaps the Blues are looking to distance themselves from that stereotype by making potential signings and developing them.
