New Chelsea signing Abdul Baba Rahman has revealed that he spoke extensively with Ghanaian international Michael Essien before making the move to Stamford Bridge.
Rahman has been rated as some of the brightest prospects in world football. It was not surprising that the London outfit decided to splash more than £ 20 million on the youngster. At just 21 years of age, he is not expected to go straight into the first-team. Instead, he will be competing for a first-team spot alongside Cesar Azpilicueta, who is naturally a right back.
