The Blues wasted no time diving into the transfer market by securing the Porto right-back´s signature for a £16.1million fee in a three-year deal only a day after missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester United.
He told Chelsea TV: "I have friends who are at Chelsea and it´s a club I feel I can improve at and grow as a player. I´ve always had a dream to play in England - I always watched the Premier League as a child, I love the English game and now I´m here, I´m going to work to do my best."
