Veteran goalkeeper Rob Green has signed for Chelsea, ostensibly as back-up for Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero.
The former Norwich, West Ham, QPR, Leeds and England player will also help Maurizio Sarri’s side fulfill their quota of homegrown players.
Nevertheless, the 38-year-old makes for an underwhelming statement as Chelsea look to convince the likes of Eden Hazard to stay.

Your agent should be knighted by the queen

Rob Green to Chelsea. Naturally he'll move above Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the midfield pecking order.

A lot of people asking why Chelsea would be interested in a 38-year-old Rob Green…
Home grown ✔️
Has gloves ✔️
Able to run a car-share to Swindon in the Checkatrade Trophy ✔️

Rob Green to Chelsea makes a lot of sense. Played under Sarri at Tegoleto, Sansovino, Sangiovannese, Pescara, Arezzo, Avellino, Verona, Perugia, Grosseto, Alessandria, Sorrento and Empoli so knows his methods well and will be a useful lieutenant in the dressing room at Stamford B

If a move for Rob Green falls through, Chelsea are understood to be looking at either Albert Camus or Karol Wojtyła to fill their vacant 3rd keeper slot.

Honestly if signing Rob Green doesn’t convince Hazard to stay then he seriously can fuck off. We’ve just signed one of the best keepers in the world for him.

2010 – After signing Rob Green, Chelsea will use their Delorean to go back to 2010 and also buy Glen Johnson and Shaun Wright-Phillips. Doc.

We’re signing Rob Green to help fill our quota of home grown players and we’re signing Pepe Reina to help fill our quota of wankers.

Nothing marks the post-world cup comedown quite like Rob Green trending again.

Rob Green has as much chance of getting a game as I have becoming the next Pope
