Remy ‘happy and proud’ with Chelsea move

, reports the Daily Star.

The Frenchman has completed an £8.5million move to Stamford Bridge after the Blues activated his buy-out-clause.

Remy – who had previously come close to signing for both Arsenal and Liverpool – will challenge Didier Drogba and Diego Costa for a first team place at Stamford Bridge, after Fernando Torres completed a move to AC Milan.

“I feel very happy and very proud,” Remy said. “When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said ‘let’s go’ straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world.

“I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.”
