Premier League icon has been left STUNNED’ by Chelsea’s brand new summer signing
Gary Neville has questioned Chelsea’s decision to sign Brighton defender Marc Cucurella this summer transfer window
Chelsea made the big decision ust a few days ago to make a move for Cucurella after a very impressive season for Brighton last season which showed that he is a real quality Premier League player
Tuchel does have Ben Chilwell in that position – but with no obvious alternative and all the rumours which have suggested that Marcos Alonso is leaving the club – The German boss needed to add a new left-back to the side
However – the move – the money that Chelsea paid has shocked many in the media and Manchester United icon Gary Neville has opened up and admitted that he has been left stunned by the latest transfer from the Blues
‘That one just stunned us today,’ the former Manchester United and England defender said on Sky Sports.
‘It’s a staggering amount of money and they’ve got Ben Chilwell in that position already. That’s a massive transfer that’s gone through. That’s the one [summer deal] that stands out for me.
‘Seeing him in a Chelsea shirt… is he going to improve and prove to be worth that sum of money?’
Following his move to Chelsea, Cucurella said: ‘I’m really happy. It’s a big opportunity for me to join one of the best clubs in the world. I’m going to work hard to be happy here and help the team.’
Look – Cucurella is a brilliant player that will be a great signing for Chelsea – but that amount of money is crazy and Brighton have done a great job in getting so much money
