Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic has signed a new four-year deal with the club and has moved to Spartak Moscow on loan for the 2017/18 season.
The 22-year-old who spent last season on loan with AC Milan impressed in the Serie A and also got interest from clubs willing to sign him on a permanent deal.
The Croatian midfielder joined Chelsea in 2014 from Hadjuk Split and is yet to play for the senior team. He featured in our recent pre-season friendly games against Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.
By moving to Spartak Moscow, Pasalic will have the opportunity to get his first taste of Champions League group stage football with the reigning Russian champions.
