Remy was all set to move to Liverpool from Queens Park Rangers, but a problem highlighted in the medical meant that the Reds turned their backs on the deal.
Remy ended up signing for Chelsea instead, and he spent three years at Stamford Bridge.
Remy’s time with Chelsea wasn’t a huge success, as he never managed to establish himself as a regular starter.
But the French international claims that he has no regrets about missing out on a move to Liverpool.
“I was supposed to sign for Liverpool,” he admitted. “I went for the medical in Boston, then apparently I failed the medical.
“For me, everything happens for a reason, which means at the end of the day, Chelsea. We had a fantastic season. This year Liverpool had been in trouble, it was not the Liverpool of the previous season.”
Remy won the Premier League in his first season at Chelsea, with Liverpool finishing in back in sixth place during the 2014/15 campaign.
The forward went on to play 47 times for Chelsea, scoring 12 times, before moving on in 2017.
It is questionable whether Liverpool would have made a good signing by bringing in Remy, but at the time it was a disappointment for the Reds.
Remy is now at Lille, and is set to feature tonight, when the French side take on Chelsea in the Champions League.
