'This is why I joined Chelsea' - Chilwell is happy with his transfer

Mon 26 April 2021 | 9:51

The fullback made a £50 million move from Leicester City to Stamford Bridge last summer, and although he has to fight for his place since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel, he has enjoyed his time in west London as he helped the Blues to put themselves in contention for European and domestic glory.

Ahead of their Champions League clash with Real Madrid, Chilwell told


: "This is the reason I came to Chelsea. You want to be playing in so-called cup finals every week when you’re challenging for top four.

"We’ve got Real Madrid on Tuesday, which is stuff as a kid you dream about and we’ve got a cup final.

"It’s a reason I came to Chelsea and we’re excited. Every week is going to be an important game when we are challenging for silverware and top four. 

"The Euros on top of that as well, we’re hoping to capitalise on that."

Currently on a good run of form after their 1-0 derby victory over West Ham, Chelsea will travel to Madrid in confidence.

Chilwell added on the importance of claiming another morale-boosting success: "(It was) massive. Both teams are fighting for top four.

"We’re roughly on the same number of points, so we knew whoever won would have a good chance of getting in the top four.

"Thankfully we won and we knew before the game the importance of it. The clean sheet is massive and to get the goal we were happy for Timo."
