British newspaper The Daily Mail, have reported within the last ten minutes that Chelsea have completed the signing of Marseille right back Cesar Azpilicueta, the player will train with his new team mates on Friday morning.
The 22-year-old has signed a 5-year-contract and the fee is around £7 million. Azpilicueta will be available to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday and is expected to be officially unveiled by the club on Friday afternoon.
The Spanish international right back has been impressing pundits all around the world during his impressive spell in the French Ligue 1. A growing reputation is surrounding the young right back's ability to get forward to become an attacking threat as well as being solid in defence. He has a very dangerous right foot and an excellent crossing ability.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been chasing the young starlet for the majority of the transfer window and has been pushing through the final touches of the deal this week.
With the signing of Victor Moses from Wigan also being completed, it is thought that the Stamford Bridge club will call a press conference today to confirm both Moses and Azpilicueta officially as Chelsea players.
The blues have been short at right back since Jose Bosingwa left at the beginning of the summer when his contract ran out. Chelsea's new policy to buy young has seen the incredible opportunity arise for the Spanish full back to step up and really make a name for himself.
