Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has successfully completed his £50million move to Premier League champions Chelsea.
The deal was reportedly clinched just before the transfer window deadline with Chelsea breaking the British transfer record to capture the star striker.
The Spanish international star said he was delighted to land at Stamford Bridge and is looking forward to a prosperous career with the Blues after penning a five-and-a-half-year deal.
Torres said : “I am very happy with my transfer to Chelsea and I am looking forward very much to helping my new team-mates this season and for many years to come,”.
“Having played against Chelsea many times since coming to England, and in some very big games I will never forget, I know there are many great players here and I will work hard to win a place in the team.
“I hope I can score some important goals for the supporters to enjoy this season.”
Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck added: “This is a very significant day for Chelsea, capturing one of the best players in the world with his peak years ahead of him.
“We have long admired the talents of a player who is a proven goalscorer in English football and Fernando’s arrival is a sign of our continuing high ambitious. I hope every Chelsea fan is as excited as I am with this news.”
