Kalidou Koulibaly has signed for Chelsea in a deal worth £40m. The center-back is excited to join the club as he gave his initial thoughts after the signing was completed.
“‘I’m very happy to be here with this team at Chelsea,’ said Koulibaly. ‘It’s a big team in the world and my dream was always to play in the Premier League.
“Chelsea came first to get me in 2016 but we didn’t make it. Now when they came to me I accepted it because they really wanted me to come to the Premier League to play for them.
“When I spoke to my good friends Edou and Jorginho they made my choice easier so I’m really happy to be with you today.
“I want to thank the fans because I saw a lot of them in London and on the plane, everybody was happy for me to be here. So I want to thank them and I hope the season will be really good and I, we, will give some good moments to the fans.”
Koulibaly is one of the world’s best center-backs and is a massive addition to the Chelsea squad. We cannot wait to see him play for the Blues.
