Chelsea paid massive fees to sign Moises Caicedo, as the Blues broke the club and British transfer record – paying a massive £115m fee to sign the Ecuadorian.

The 22-year-old has revealed that his price tag was a burden to him at first, but he’s now feeling better and playing better, as he has taken his mind off it.

Speaking to the club’s media team, Caicedo said: “At the beginning, I felt the pressure. In my mind, I wanted to show my best football and why the club paid the money for me.

“After that, I started to speak with people who helped me understand that if Chelsea signed me it’s because I am worth it. I have kept on playing and I know I have to show my best on the pitch.

“Of course, I haven’t played every game well and it was tough at the beginning, but now I feel good and feel I am helping the team. I am only thinking about the game and not what people are saying about me.

“Personally, now I am feeling good. I can see my gains and I am playing better and helping the team.

“That is important for me because when I don’t play well, I get frustrated. It’s my first season at Chelsea so it’s normal that it took some time and I am learning in every game.”

Caicedo has started 21 of Chelsea’s 26 Premier League fixtures, and is a key player for Mauricio Pochettino.

He penned a contract with Chelsea until the end of 2030-31 – as Todd Boehly came with a plan to snap up the best youngsters for the long-term.

Caicedo is definitely settling down at the club, and will soon prove that the £115m fee wasn’t a mistake.
