Loic Remy
Loic Remy is now a Chelsea player.

Loic Remy says he made the move to Chelsea because he believes they can win the Champions League this season as the club confirmed an £8m four-year deal with the striker.

Remy was included in QPR's starting line-up on Saturday but taken out at the last minute as the Blues activated his release clause. Arsenal tried to hijack the deal but were unsuccessful and on Sunday he was confirmed as a Chelsea player.

And the France international, who recently failed a medical in a proposed move to Liverpool, insists that he couldn't be happier to have made the move to Stamford Bridge where competition for the striking position is at an all-time high with summer signings Diego Costa and Didier Drogba.

'I feel very happy and very proud to have signed for Chelsea," he told the official website. "They are one of the best clubs in the world and I can't wait to get started, training and playing with my new team-mates, when I get back from international duty with France.

"To be honest I wanted to play in the Champions League this season so yes, that was another of my motivations for coming here. I know that Chelsea can win the Champions League this season because there is so much quality in the squad. The first thing to aim for is winning titles."

Remy also revealed conversations with Jose Mourinho about what the club wanted from him. He insisted that he will improve rapidly under the successful manager, who returned to Chelsea after a drama-filled time at Real Madrid.

"Yeah, I spoke with him," he explained. "He is very clever and he knows exactly what he wants. He has targets for me and I know I have a target for myself as well.

"Everybody wants the best so the discussion was really good. I know he can get the best out of a player and I'm looking forward to working with him."
