Chelsea announced the signing of Loic Remy from QPR yesterday for a fee of £10.5m and a four year contract. I am wondering what YOU the Chelsea fans think of his move to Stamford Bridge?
First and foremost it's important to understand that he isn't going to be first choice after the blistering start Diego Costa has made this season. However, Remy offers Jose Mourinho a different option up front and that's what I believe is key in the decision to bring him here.
Think of Drogba up front and you think of power and strength. Think of Remy and you think of movement and pace then think of Diego Costa and you get a combination of the two!
I have been really impressed with Chelsea's transfer approach this summer. There has been no messing about and deals have been done and dusted quickly. Remy seems to be the same.
Remy replaces Fernando Torres who has left the club and is proven in the Premier League although it was expected that he would sign for Liverpool this past summer. Liverpool pulled the plug on the deal because they found an issue with his heart to which Jose Mourinho has responded by saying that there is "nothing wrong" with Remy.
During Rémy’s transfer from Nice to Marseille in 2010, Marseille announced that MRI scans had discovered “an anomaly” on the wall of his heart. Yet following consultations with a panel of five leading specialists in the field, Marseille, unlike Liverpool, went through with the transfer.
So to the player himself and the way we play now. Chelsea have an abundance of creativity in the side whether it's from out wide or through the middle and Remy could really find his feet here and score plenty of goals.
Diego Costa has demonstrated what we had lacked for the whole of last season and I fully expect Remy to do the same.
What do you people think of his move to Chelsea and how do you think he will do here?
