But the Argentine may have confirmed this himself on social media. After a Blues fan uploaded a video welcoming the player to Stamford Bridge, Paredes was quick to retweet it, giving everyone the impression that the i's are dotted and the t's crossed.

And it wasn't only on Twitter where information was shared. On Paredes' Instagram account he posted a photo of himself with his wife and daughters at the airport, saying goodbye to his family in Argentina.

"Bye Argentina! We return home full of love. Thank you always to family and friends!!! We'll see you again."
