The deal will Sanchez remain at Stamford Bridge for at least the next seven years.

Chelsea’s co-sporting directors, Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart, have maintained: “We’re very pleased to welcome Robert to Chelsea and he adds further quality to our goalkeeping unit.

Edouard Mendy’s departure to Saudi Arabian side Al-Ahli earlier this summer has prompted Chelsea to strengthen their goalkeeping options.

Sanchez, who came through Brighton’s academy had made a total of 90 appearances for the Seagulls. The 25-year-old has also enjoyed two international caps for Luis de la Fuente’s side.

Disappointingly, Sanchez lost his place last season to the Italian Jason Steele under new manager, Roberto De Zerbi.

Thankfully, Sanchez will reunite with his former goalkeeping coach at Brighton, Ben Roberts, who is also at Chelsea.

The goalkeeper becomes Chelsea’s seventh summer signing following the arrivals of Christopher Nkunku, Axel Disasi, Nicolas Jackson, Lesley Ugochukwu, Angelo and Diego Moreira.
