Chelsea new boy Saul Niguez has turned the air blue by claiming he is joining a ‘great f***ing team’.
The midfielder also revealed he feared his dream move would never happen and how it went right to the wire on transfer deadline day.
Chelsea clinched a season long loan move for Niguez after days of haggling with his club Atletico Madrid.
But the deal went almost an hour past the 11pm transfer deadline when Spain’s online player registration system crashed.
Relieved Niguez is delighted to have finally joined the European champions with a view to a permanent £35m deal at the end of the season.
Niguez gave an interview to eSports commentator Ibai Llanos, on his Twitch channel and said: “Leaving Atlético is the most difficult decision I have ever taken in my life.
“I have everything here in Madrid and in Spain, it is very hard for me to leave the club.
“But now I believe all parties are happy with this deal because Atlético brings in one of the best players of its history [Antoine Griezmann] and I’m going to play for Chelsea. And let’s be honest, Chelsea has a great f***ing team.”
