The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the brightest young full backs in European football and arrives at Stamford Bridge after helping the Bundesliga outfit to a club-record finish last season.
However, more trouble lurks on the horizon with news coming from the Daily Mail that Rahman's arrival in west London has been delayed by work-permit problems.
With the value of the transfer already meeting the minimum requirement for an automatic work permit, Chelsea should have no problem securing one for their new signing.
Nevertheless, there has been a delay in the processing of his visa and although the deal has already been confirmed by Chelsea's official channels, he cannot play for his new club just yet.
The last signing?
Chelsea can now put all their eggs in John Stones' basket. Mourinho has already launched two bis for the Everton defender as is reportedly preparing a third one worth £30m.
Mourinho is believed to have substituted John Terry at half time in Sunday's 3-0 defeat by Manchester City in order to send Roman Abramovich a clear message regarding his desire to sign Stones.
Roberto Martinez is adamant that the 21-year-old will not be leaving the Toffees, but an offer of £35m is rumoured to be their asking price.
