“I would like say thanks to Chelsea and their fans for all good moments that I have lived here," he wrote on his Instagram page.

"I'm proud to have written my name in the club's history with titles, especially the Champions League.

"I need to say a special thanks also to all people who have supported me daily, staff, management and team partners. You'll always have my admiration.

"Thank you,@chelseafc."
