Football star,Ruben, is very excited to sign a 5-year contract with the blues stating that it’s his home.
Ruben, 23, built a successful 2018/2019 campaign with Chelsea and has decided not to leave them until 2024.
The midfielder had played for England last season though he didn’t participate in the UEFA nations League finals and Europa League due to injury.
“I’m really happy and pleased that I get to stay here for another five years. It’s the place where I’ve grown up playing and hopefully I’ll be playing here for a lot longer,’ he said.
‘At eight or nine years old, of course you never think you’ll be here for so long because you just want to enjoy yourself and play with your friends.
‘When I look back and see how the hard work has paid off, it’s a good feeling. That only makes me want to work harder to achieve more in the future.
‘I hope to win a lot more trophies with the team and personally it’s just about trying to do as well as I can and work hard to be a key player for Chelsea.”
So proud to sign a new long-term contract! I’ve been at this club since the age of 7 and it has always been my dream to play here. @ChelseaFC is my home and I can’t wait to get back out on the pitch. See you all soon. 🙏🏾💙✨ pic.twitter.com/6D5iDRDVIP

We see Ruben as an important part of the squad for many years to come and we are very pleased he also considers his future to be with Chelsea.
‘He is proof of the fantastic work being done in the Chelsea Academy and in recent seasons has developed into a first-team regular and an England international. Under Frank Lampard’s leadership, we believe he will be a key player for Chelsea and we look forward to welcoming him back once he has recovered from his injury.’
