 Chelsea on Thursday announced the signing of former England goalkeeper Robert Green on a one-year contract to provide backup for Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero.

The 38-year-old was a free agent after leaving Huddersfield at the end of last season.
Green won 12 England caps between 2005 and 2012 and played at the 2010 World Cup.
His season at Chelsea will be his 20th as a professional after spells at Norwich, West Ham, QPR, Leeds and Huddersfield.
“It has been a whirlwind 24 hours,” Green told the Chelsea website. “You are thinking about your career and where you want to go and then you get a phone call like this, and it is a short conversation.”
“It has been a pretty dramatic time for me and I can’t wait to get started. I am absolutely delighted and it is a thrill and an honour to be here.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea have told AC Milan they will have to pay up to £62m for Alvaro Morata after initial negotiations got underway on Wednesday.
It is understood Milan’s new sporting director, Leonardo, had a series of phone conversations about a potential transfer, with the player reportedly keen on a return to Italy, where he impressed for Juventus in the Champions League.
The two clubs remain poles apart on their valuations of the player, though, prompting Milan to retain their interest in bringing Gonzalo Higuain or Radamel Falcao to the San Siro.
Morata joined Chelsea last summer from Real Madrid for an initial £57m, with the job of replacing Diego Costa.
But the forward scored just 11 goals in 31 Premier League appearances and lost his place to Olivier Giroud in the latter part of last season.
