Chelsea youngster Cesare Casadei had a mixed end to his Under-20 World Cup exploits, losing 1-0 to Uruguay but picking up both the Golden Ball and Golden Boot.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with Reading, playing 15 times and scored once against Blackburn Rovers as the Royals were relegated to League One.

Signed from Inter Milan for a reported £15m, the midfielder was top scorer at the tournament with seven strikes and two assists.

Becoming the first European player to win both the Golden Ball and Golden Boot at the tournament, Casadei lit up South Korea.

He has been linked with a move to Championship outfit Watford next season as he continues to build toward making a first-team impact at Stamford Bridge.
