Romeu, 19, sealed his £4.35 million move from Barcelona to Chelsea this week, inking a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge. The agreement, however, includes a buy-back clause of £8.7 million after one year and £13 million after two.

"You never know what can happen in the future," Romeu said. "I will always support Barca and hopefully some day I can return there. But, right now, what I want is to succeed at Chelsea and be well there."

Romeu, who is expected to compete with John Obi Mikel for the holding midfield berth, is hoping to learn a lot at the Blues, adding "They (Chelsea) have players of enormous quality. The coach is also of a very high level and what I want to do is continue improving as a player there."
