Since signing for Chelsea on loan from Atletico Madrid, Saúl Ñíguez has shown his ecstaticism and enthusiasm through social media as the 26 year old Spanish midfielder seems obsessed with Chelsea.
This has made Ñíguez a fan favourite as fans across the globe reiterate that Saúl Ñíguez bleeds blue already.
However, Saúl Ñíguez is bound to return to Atletico Madrid once his loan spell expires if Chelsea opts against activating his €40million option to buy.
After Ñíguez completed a switch across the bridge on deadline day, he couldn’t hide his felicity as he claims that he couldn’t reject the chance to sign for Chelsea.
He said: “I am so happy to be here. It was a great opportunity for myself and for my career. I had to take the chance to be here at Chelsea so I’m very happy and very excited.
“I’m really looking forward to training and, most importantly, to start working with my coach.”
Saúl also bided his time to explain how the last day of the transfer window went for him.
Saúl said, “I’ve spent 15 years at Atletico Madrid, it’s my home. And then, when the opportunity to join Chelsea came up, I couldn’t turn it down.
“The last day of the transfer window was crazy but in the end I could come here, as we all were hoping, so I have to seize this chance. Since I was a child, I always had two goals – to make history at Atletico Madrid and to play in the Premier League, not only because of the league itself but also for its culture and the language.
“The language is a big challenge for me and I want to learn it as soon as possible in order to be able to communicate with my team-mates simply and comfortably. At Atletico I used to speak with [Kieran] Trippier but my English isn’t good enough. I don’t even dare to do interviews in English!”
Since joining Chelsea, Saúl had a series of photo and video collections which includes images and pictures of him in Chelsea’s home and away kits and also images and videos of him undergoing his first training session as a Chelsea player, but the recent one happens to be in Chelsea’s newly unveiled third kit as seen in the video below.
