Following earlier speculation between Fenerbahce, Arsenal and other non popular choices concerning which team would be signing Michael Essien, his fate has finally been sealed with a move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea Football Club decided to calm the increasingly heated arguments about his move yesterday and announced that Michael Essien is joining Real Madrid on a season-long loan.

Michael Essien until his recent injuries has been a big fan favourite and a central member of the Chelsea Football club, attracting many African and other supporters to the team. In six seasons in west London, he impressed by winning two Premier League titles, four FA Cups and one Champions League winners’ medal.

Essien has worked hard during his time with Chelsea and also been a key player in helping them win many titles. The Blues will definitely be missing this man as he leaves with an impressive history.

Michael Essien first scored for Chelsea in a 2-1 win against Tottenham which also won the Goal of the Season for his incredible long-range strike against Arsenal a year later.

Essien made 247 appearances for Chelsea and scored 25 goals in total. Impressive?

29-year-old Essien, joined the club in 2005 from Lyon. He is moving to the Bernabeu where he will meet with Jose Mourinho-former Chelsea manager and a key player in Essien’s football career as he influenced Essien’s move to Stanford Bridge…Perhaps he influenced this Real Madrid move too ;)

We at GhanaCelebrities.Com wish Essien best of luck in his new environment.

    good news ,who jah bless no one curse,
    Essien is too good to e at the bench ,Di Matteo hate towards him was that a nigerian his ****istant as a head coach ,so instead Essien to play he prefer mikel obi just because a nigerian is his ****istant,and all the chelsea fans including the owner of the team knows that essienis better than obi ,during the special ones time at chelsea Essien plays every game .

    di matteo woe onto you ,now that essien is gone we will see what you can do ,it will be better for you to resign you are not a coach to coach a big team like chelsea,you won the champions league by luck couple with drogba,kalou,maluda and bosingwa..

    real madrid is bigger than chelsea by far with 9 champions league trophys ESSEIN welcome to a team of champions.
    God bless you ,god bless Ghana
