The former Queens Park Rangers man was linked with a whole host of top clubs before eventually making the move to Stamford Bridge towards the end of the transfer window, coming in as a replacement for Fernando Torres after his loan move to AC Milan.

However, things could have gone rather differently as he came very close to signing for Liverpool earlier on in the transfer window, though it was reported at the time that he had failed a medical that prevented him from completing his move to Anfield.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp was then quoted as rubbishing these suggestions, claiming that Remy is one of the fittest players around.

Still, while Remy remains in the dark over what went wrong, he is not dwelling on what could have been and insists he is very happy to have joined Chelsea, even if he is doing so with the awareness that he will not always be first choice for Jose Mourinho’s side.

“I did not understand myself. A problem during the medical examination? I do not know. They put it, that must be it,” he is quoted as saying.

“In my head, I quite wanted to stay at QPR, but I did not hesitate one second to many reasons: for my room for improvement, for my confidence, in terms of level of demand and Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world. I’m happy to have signed for a club like this.

“I know I’m not going to be the first striker, but nothing is set. I have goals. By signing here, I did not say it was to stay on the sidelines. I will try to move up alongside great players. The rest will happen naturally.”
