Moises Caicedo has sealed his British record transfer switch to Chelsea despite Liverpool previously having a bid accepted with the midfielder explaining his decision.

Moises Caicedo says he “didn’t have to think twice” about going to Chelsea, even though Liverpool was interested in him.

The midfielder has signed with the Blues, who paid a British record of £115m to get him away from Brighton. Chelsea had been trying to sign Caicedo all summer, but their bids were turned down several times before they finally got the deal done before their local rivals.
Liverpool tried to get ahead of Chelsea last week by making a bid of £110 million, even though Brighton said the bidding was over. Caicedo, on the other hand, wanted to go to Stamford Bridge, and he was finally able to move there.

The soccer player from Ecuador said, “I’m so glad to join Chelsea! I’m so happy to be at this big club, and when Chelsea called me, I didn’t have to think twice about signing with them. “Being here is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to start working with the team.”

Chelsea wanted to get a good defensive midfielder this summer, and they were able to get the player they wanted. Mauricio Pochettino has brought in a few new players, but he just spent a lot of money on a player who will play in the middle of the pitch next to Enzo Fernandez.

Co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said, “Moises has been a standout player in European football for the past 18 months, and we are thrilled to add him to Mauricio Pochettino’s team.” Moises is a midfielder with a rare set of skills, and we’ve been looking for him for a while. We think he’ll make a big difference at Stamford Bridge this season and in the years to come.”

The Blues could also sign Romeo Lavia before Liverpool, who could leave Southampton before the window closes. The Saints think the young player is worth £50 million, and both Chelsea and the Reds are still trying to sign him.
