Loic Remy has stated that he still does not know why his move to Liverpool this summer failed at the final hurdle, with the France international having travelled to Boston to undergo a medical with the club, as reported by the Daily Mail.
He did, however, say that he was happy to have moved to Chelsea instead, and called them one of the best clubs in the world after his transfer.
He said: “I did not understand myself. A problem during the medical examination? I do not know. They put it, that must be it.
“In my head, I quite wanted to stay at QPR, but I did not hesitate one second to many reasons: for my room for improvement, for my confidence, in terms of level of demand and Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world. I’m happy to have signed for a club like this.
“I know I’m not going to be the first striker, but nothing is set. I have goals. By signing here, I did not say it was to stay on the sidelines. I will try to move up alongside great players. The rest will happen naturally.”
Remy is expected to be backup to Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge this season, with the transfer of Fernando Torres to AC Milan necessitating an unexpected dip back into the transfer market for Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho.
An injury to Costa might, however, mean that Remy gets an opportunity to start for the west London side before he was expecting to. Costa was forced to withdraw from Spain’s squad for their opening European Championship qualifier, and was replaced by Barcelona youngster Munir as a result.
