Chelsea have made a dig at Liverpool on social media after capturing Moises Caicedo in a record-breaking £115million deal.

The Blues had made Caicedo their primary transfer target and have been trying to strike a deal for his services all summer. However, Liverpool appeared to have stolen a march in the race for the 21-year-old’s signature after submitting a £111m offer prior to Sunday’s Premier League meeting between the two sides.

But after Caicedo made it clear that he had no appetite to discuss a move to Anfield, Chelsea returned to Brighton with a proposal which smashes the current British transfer record in order to get their man – and they were quick to rub Liverpool’s nose in it on Monday evening.

Shortly after confirming Caicedo was officially a Chelsea player, the Blues shared a social media clip of Caicedo alongside his mother donning both the current club shirt and an old strip, complete with the mischievous caption: “It’s only ever been Chelsea”.

Unsurprisingly, the cheeky post went down a storm with elated Chelsea fans online, and they also got to hear from the man himself following the completion of his dream transfer.

Speaking to, Caicedo said: “I am so happy to join Chelsea! I am so excited to be here at this big club and I didn’t have to think twice when Chelsea called me, I just knew I wanted to sign for the club. It’s a dream come true to be here and I can’t wait to get started with the team.”

Co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley also commented on the record transfer, adding: “Moises has proved himself as a standout player in European football over the past 18 months, and we are thrilled to add him to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.

“Moises possesses a rare midfield skill set and is a player we’ve been targeting for some time. We believe he will make a significant impact at Stamford Bridge this season – and in the years ahead.”

As well as beating Liverpool to a deal for Caicedo, Chelsea are also poised to pinch Romeo Lavia from under the Reds’ noses, with the Belgian midfielder ready to complete a switch to Stamford Bridge from Southampton in a deal worth £50m plus add-ons.
