Here Is What Caicedo Said:
“I am so happy to join Chelsea! I am so excited to be here at this big club and I didn’t have to think twice when Chelsea called me, I just knew I wanted to sign for the club.
“It’s a dream come true to be here and I can’t wait to get started with the team.’
The London club have been making so many move this summer since the window open for business across the globe.
They are the only club to have more players going out at once which they needed to make happen so they can rebuild their team.
They still have more players who are expected to be sold this summer but are only waiting on reaching an agreement to see them leave.
Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku are both on the top list of players expected to leave the club this summer as the window will soon close.
Meanwhile, Moisés Caicedo deal won’t be the last this summer as they intend to bring in one other midfielder.
Chelsea have made a number of offer which was declined immediately by Brighton and Hove Albion who wanted to make more out of a sale.
The move was supposed to happen long ago, but an agreement was put together to keep the player then allow a move happen later on.
Things haven’t gone the way it was said to the player who the club are still holding out for more value on the transfer.
The last bid was €110 million from Liverpool with Chelsea topping that offer after the player rejected any chance of joining the Reds.
Mauricio Pochettino was key to making the Blues push more to make a new offer and get the midfielder who is expected to take over NGolo Kante role.
Moisés Caicedo already done his medical after an agreement was reached for a reported fee of €115 million.
His arrival could be one that would see him team up with Enzo Fernandez in the midfield as a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino.
The contract for Moises Caicedo is eight years and will run until 2031 before anything else could be done with him.
