Chelsea confirm signing of Loic Remy from QPR

Chelsea Football Club has confirmed the signing of French striker Loic Remy from QPR for a reported fee of £10.5M on a four year contract. You can read the whole article from the official website here.


Talking to Chelsea TV, this is what Remy had to say:
‘I feel very happy and very proud. When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said “let’s go” straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world. I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.’

Remy was on loan at Newcastle last season where he scored a total of 14 goals in just 26 appearances. Blessed with blistering pace and a keen eye for goal, Remy will fit in right with the Chelsea squad offering a quality competition for Diego Costa. Diego will be expected to continue as the first choice striker for Chelsea FC, however we can expect the new Frenchman to come off the bench to score important goals and also share the striking duties with Diego Costa and Didier Drogba.

Here is how Twitter reacted to this signing.

    Good signing to kill teams that park z buses by playing Costa + Remy or Drogba + Remy! He is a killer & good addition to z club. Currently, he is better than Torres in finishing.

  4. Mourinho is the Best says

    Remy is our last piece of puzzle to our great team. We now have 2 world class GK, a very solid defensive team with new addition of Luis and Zouma, a one of the best midfield of Europe with world class players like Fabregas, Matic, Hazard, Schurrle. and world class striker Costa with great cover from Drogba and Remy. Confident that we can win EPL this season. And we have more than enough power to win the UEFA European Champion too!!
