The Blues' new boy wants to win trophies and believes he can deal with the pressure of being the rising superstar of Brazilian football
The Brazilian starlet moved to Stamford Bridge this summer from Internacional and has hailed the club's facilities as giving him the perfect tools with which to reach his full potential.
"I'm very happy to be here. It's a dream to be at a club like this, a club that is renowned around the world," he told the club's official website.
"I've never seen a club with such facilities, facilities so perfect to allow you to play at your best.
"Back in Brazil when I broke into the national team, people were asking the same question, did I feel pressure at being the number 10 of the team, the new star, but I didn't feel pressure," he added.

The £25 million man was hot property over the weeks before he signed for the Blues, with a host of top European clubs racing for his signature.
After being asked about why he chose Chelsea, he said: "There are many top players at Chelsea, ones that I have always seen on the television and that is what attracted me to the club.
"In Brazil there is a different type of football, but I think I am seen as an elegant type of ball player, who is creating for another people.
"I may need to change a little bit over here, but I see myself as that sort of a player who can hopefully make a difference to the team."
