4.- Tiago

Another talented Portuguese player who arrived from Portugal, but he came to Chelsea from Benfica.

Jose Mourinho was eager to sign him from the moment he laid eyes on the player.

Tiago is a defensive midfielder who lived a long career at several clubs.

He wasn’t that successful at Chelsea during his time there, as he was too young and immature.

He remained at Chelsea for only a year, but his best years were still ahead of him.

When he moved to Juventus, Tiago matured as a player and became a world-class midfielder.

His best performances came during his time at Atletico Madrid, where he won several trophies between 2011 and 2017.
