"I’m happy and blessed to be back at this wonderful club. It’s been a long journey for me: I came here as a kid who had a lot to learn, now I’m coming back with a lot of experience and more mature.
"The relationship I have with this club means so much to me, as you know. I have supported Chelsea as a kid and now to be back and try to help them win more titles is an amazing feeling.
"The way the club is going fits my ambitions perfectly at 28 and just coming off winning Serie A. I think this opportunity comes at the right time and hopefully we can have a lot of success together.

Shaqiri poised to leave Liverpool
Xherdan Shaqiri could leave Liverpool before the close of this transfer window this summer as he has reportedly agreed on personal terms with French League giants Olympique Lyon.
The 29-year-old who scored three goals in five Euro 2020 games for Switzerland is not one of Jurgen Klopp's favourites having been frozen out of the Reds squad.
And with one year left on his deal, the Merseyside outfit is considering cashing in on him to avoid losing him for free next year.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano appears to have backed up this claim after suggesting the Swiss star is ready to move to France and is actively trying to expedite his exit.
