"I immediately said yes" - New Chelsea signing speaks out for the very first time since joining Blues


New Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero says he immediately accepted the offer to join the champions.

The 35-year-old became Antonio Conte's first summer signing after being released by Manchester City at the end of last season.

He confirmed that his goal is to "play a lot of games" and to use his experience to help regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

"As a group we have a lot of achievements to aim for," he told the club's official website.

"We want to win trophies in the same way Chelsea did in the last years. As a keeper I would like to play a lot of games, to keep improving and helping Thibaut and improving with him.

"When I received the call, when I listened to the opportunity to come to the champions and a fantastic team like Chelsea has had in the past decade to 15 years, when they built an amazing story, I didn't have to think too much.

"I immediately said yes.

"It was a great opportunity to stay in the Premier League, in a big team, and to keep improving as a keeper.

"I had a few opportunities to stay in the Premier League but the opportunity to join the champions, and not just because they were the champions, the opportunity to join a massive team like Chelsea, it was a big opportunity for me and my family."
