Chelsea signing Pasalic reveals Elche move likely

Chelsea signing Mario Pasalic has confirmed he expects to move on-loan to Spain.

The former Hajduk Split midfielder admits he's likely to move to Elche.

Pasalic told 24sata: "When I went to say goodbye to Jose Mourinho, he told me the best way to return to Chelsea is go play on-loan. He also told me that I will have to go to Spain and give the best of myself because he will take note all of my games.

"Technical Director Michael Emenalo then said that both he and Mourinho will come to see me in Spain.

"Elche? I like this option ... I have always dreamed of playing in the Liga one day."
