It’s official! We have just completed our second signing of the season!
Asmir Begovic has been linked to Chelsea since the imminent departure of Petr Cech. Manchester United did try to complicate the things a bit but, we made sure that wasn’t the case. According to Chelsea’s official website:
“Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Asmir Begovic from Stoke City.
Goalkeeper Begovic, 28, has signed a four-year contract, and becomes our second signing of the summer following the arrival of Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan.”
Begovic had the following to say after his move to the Bridge:
“I am very happy to be joining Chelsea FC. After speaking at length to the manager, I feel like I can develop here and be an important part of this team. I am looking forward to meeting up with the team on Wednesday for the pre-season tour.”

Thibaut Courtois will remain No. 13 with Begovic taking the vacant number No.1 shirt. Marco Van Ginkel moves to Stoke City for a one-year loan as part of this deal. The news comes minutes after Tomas Kalas completed his loan move to Middlesbrough.
Asmir Begovic is a brilliant Goalkeeper and there’s no doubt he will push Thibaut Courtois for the No.1 spot. We welcome Begovic to Stamford Bridge and hope he has a nice stay. We will be with you shortly analysing this deal from the Blues’ point of view!
