OFFICIAL Chelsea announcement made – £50M man delighted with Stamford Bridge move
Marc Cucurella has announced just how delighted he is that he has completed a move to Chelsea
It is no secret that Chelsea are massive fans of the man and see him as the ideal replacement for Marcos Alonso – who wants to leave the club and head back to Spanish football in order to link up with Barcelona
And Cucurella has been a player that is tipped to join one of the big clubs this transfer window after another impressive season at Brighton last year – and speculation on his future has only increased
Both Man City and ChelseaFC are very interested in signing the player this transfer window – but now he has completed his move to Stamford Bridge
On completing the deal – Chelsea announced on the club website: ‘Following reports from numerous media outlets this week, we can confirm an agreement has been reached with Brighton and Hove Albion for the signing of Marc Cucurella,’ Chelsea posted on Twitter.
On signing for Chelsea, Cucurella said: ‘I’m really happy. It’s a big opportunity for me to join one of the best clubs in the world and I’m going to work hard to be happy here and help the team.’
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly added: ‘Marc is an elite defender of proven Premier League quality and he further strengthens our squad going into the new season.
‘We continue to work on and off the pitch, and we’re delighted Marc will be a part of the present and future at Chelsea.’
No disrespect to Brighton – But Cucurella is a player that needs to make that step up and it is easy to see why the Premier League giants want him
He has proven himself to be a very good defender in the Premier League and he will be a very good signing for ChelseaFC
