Chelsea’s increasingly impressive summer spending spree continues today with the official signing of Cesare Casadei, who has put pen to paper on a six-year contract after arriving from Inter Milan on Wednesday and completing his medical.

The two teams reportedly agreed a non-insignificant fee of €15m (£12.5m) for the 19-year-old highly rated midfielder, with an additional €5m (£4.25m) in potential bonuses and add-ons, but without any further contractual considerations or obligations (such as a buyback clause or something similar).

Casadei is not expected to be a prominent part of our first-team this season, but clearly we have high hopes for him in the (near?) future.

“Cesare is a player we have tracked for some time and we are delighted that he has now agreed to join Chelsea, where he will initially strengthen our Under-21s squad. He is another exciting emerging talent who we are looking forward to seeing develop and progress further as he breaks into senior football in the coming years.”

In any case, welcome, Cesare, let’s conquer some things!
