• Tammy Abraham has signed a five-year deal with Roma
  • He will finally play under Jose Mourinho
  • He ended his Chelsea career with 30 competitive goals

Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham has left the Premier League side to join Jose Mourinho at AS Roma in the 2021 summer market.

Roma have paid $47 million for Abraham, who won the Champions League with Chelsea last season, according to the Italian club's official website. "The overall transfer agreement also includes a number of performance-related clauses, based on the achievements of both the player and the club. Chelsea will also retain the right to a percentage of any future transfer fee involving the striker," said Roma in a press release.

Abraham, who started his senior career at Stamford Bridge in 2015, has signed a five-year contract with Roma and will wear the No. 9 jersey.

It is understood the deal for the 23-year-old England national includes a buy-back clause set at $93 millon, reported BBC Sport.

“You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately. Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again – so I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be. It’s a massive honor to be the No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team,” Abraham told Roma's website after signing the contract.

Having joined Chelsea's academy as an eight-year-old, Abraham was a part of the Chelsea youth team which recorded consecutive triumphs in both the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup in 2015 and 2016. He ended up making 82 appearances for Chelsea's first-team, across all competitions, where he netted 30 goals and 12 assists.

Abraham became Roma's fourth signing of the summer, after Rui Patricio, Eldor Shomurodov and Matias Vina.

At Chelsea, Abraham missed playing under the management of Mourinho. After the Portuguese boss and Chelsea parted ways in December 2015 by mutual consent, Abraham was handed his Chelsea debut in May 2016 by interim manager Guus Hiddink in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League.

Mourinho managed Chelsea in two stints -- 2004 to 2007 and 2013 to 2015. During his first stint at Chelsea, Mourinho won two Premier League titles, while he helped the side win once more during his second spell. He also helped the Blues win a FA Cup trophy, three League Cup titles and a Community Shield.
