was confirmed on social media.

Nemanja Matic, Nathaniel Chalobah and Cesc

reportedly earn £140,000 a week.
The 29-year-old underwent a medical on
Thursday as he prepared to become the second
player to swap West London for the Far East,
following Oscar who has signed for Shanghai

The Nigerian international had held talks with
Valencia, while Marseille and Inter Milan also
showed interest.

his name on it.
