Footage stemming from Premier League giants Chelsea’s pre-season tour has piqued attentions across the club’s fanbase on Saturday evening.
This comes on the back of the latest addition to Thomas Tuchel’s ranks finally linking up with his new teammates.
The player in question? Kalidou Koulibaly.
Weeks of speculation linking the Senegalese international with a move to Chelsea was of course brought to a close in the early hours of Friday morning, upon the capital outfit taking to their official social media platforms to announce Koulibaly’s arrival on a four-year contract.
The ex-Napoli man joins Raheem Sterling as the Blues’ 2nd signing of the summer, replenishing Tuchel’s squad on the back of the departures of all of Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Romelu Lukaku.

Koulibaly, in turn, has since made his way to Las Vegas, to link up with his new teammates as part of Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the United States.
And one member of the Pensioners’ ranks who appears to be particularly excited by the prospect of lining out alongside the 31-year-old over the course of the coming campaign comes in the form of Jorginho.
This of course comes with the pair having struck up a close bond both on and off the pitch across their respective stints in Italy with Napoli.
Jorginho therefore took to social media on Saturday evening to celebrate the arrival of his former teammate in Vegas, with both he and the incoming Koulibaly having been full of smiles whilst in attendance at Chelsea’s team hotel:
