The Senegal star said of his conversation with the club legend: “I always want to know the full story before I go somewhere and I asked him a lot of questions about the club, about the supporters and the number of John. I wanted to ask about the number for Chelsea.

“He gave me his number directly. I called him and at first, he didn’t believe it was me – he thought it was a joke. He then called the team manager to ask if it was really me.

“After, I asked him again and I told him fully that I wanted to take his number. I know that for him it is a really important number. It is also an important number for me as I took it in Napoli and I wanted it again here in Chelsea. When he told me yes, I was really happy.”
