It’s official Chelsea have completed the signing of Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill. Cahill was repotedly bought for a fee believed to be in the region of £7 million and is set to be presented at Stamford Bridge sometime this week.
It is still not clear whether Chelsea gave into Cahill’s obscene demands of a £100,000 weekly wage in addition to a £4 million signing on fee as the fine details of the deal are yet to be revealed, however, what is certain is that Cahill is happy with the deal.
“Chelsea is a massive club, it is a club that looks to win trophies season in season out,” Cahill said.
“It is a big opportunity for me to be a part of that. Opportunities like this you can’t turn down.
“This is the right move for me at the right time. I would like to thank everybody at Bolton because I have had a great four years at the football club.”
Cahill will join fellow England internationals Frank Lampard, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Daniel Sturridge in the blues roster.
Meanwhile, Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is confident of rediscovering his goal scoring form. With the AFCON set to start in 4 days, Chelsea will see their major strikers Drogba and Kalou leave for international duty leaving Villas-Boas with the option of using Torres and Sturridge as his main strikers.
“As a striker I’m always trying to score and I always want to score,” Torres told reporters.
“I’m hoping now I can find my best form again.
“It’s been a different style here for me to adapt to and I’ve been giving assists for my team-mates, which has helped us towards winning games.”
Despite cementing their hold on 4th spot in the league, the next few weeks are extremely vital for Chelsea and AVB. Any slip ups now in the league and it would almost be impossible for them to recover.
That said, i am very sure that if Torres can just score one goal, he will set the ball rolling for avalanche to follow, however the sooner it happens the better. With the threat of missing the Euros very real, i am sure Torres does not need any more motivation.
