Chelsea have officially announced the signing of 19-year-old Mario Pasalic from Croatian side Hajduk Split for an undisclosed fee, as he becomes the Blues’ second arrival of the summer transfer window.

The Croatia Under-21 Star had been linked with the Stamford Bridge club for few months and he finally put pen to paper today.
The German born midfielder was a member of Croatia’s provisional 30-man squad for the World Cup 2014 but he wasn’t selected to go to Brazil.
The attacking central midfielder has scored 11 times in 36 appearances last season and helped his side to earn third place in the Croatian league.
Pasalic’s arrival should have come as a much needed boost to the Blue’s confidence.
