Signed, sealed and delivered as star Caballero delighted after agreeing to sign up with Chelsea
Willy Caballero has opened up after officially agreeing to stay with the Chelsea for a further 12 months.
The Argentine has primarily been back-up for No.1 keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, although he was utilised by ex-manager Maurizio Sarri in the cup competitions, and made just nine appearances under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri this season.
However, with the reports that Frank Lampard has not been happy with the performances of Kepa, the 38-year old stood in for the Spaniard after a poor run of form midway through the season and is obviously considered a valued member of the Blues first-team.
And recent reports in the media reported that Lampard told the hierarchy that he intended to keep hold of Caballero for at least another 12 months, a deal just needed to be wrapped up by the club.
And after a few weeks of talks, that deal has now been completed and Caballero delight at officially signing with us.
The Argentine goalie beamed on the Chelsea website: “I am very happy to make this announcement.
“It is a privilege to be part of this squad and family, at one of the most historic clubs in the Premier League.
“It is a difficult time for everyone right now so I feel blessed by this opportunity and truly appreciate it.
“I want to thank my teammates for helping me to be at my best and I want to thank the boss and club for extending my contract.
“I’m sure they will continue to demand the maximum from me and I will compete with the same energy as always.
“I am very happy.”
Great news and we are very happy that the stopper is staying at the club
