Chelsea have officially confirmed a deal with Brighton & Hove Albion for Marc Cucurella.
This is coming after the Spaniard handed in a transfer request on Friday in a bid to push through a move to Manchester City which has ironically led him to Chelsea.
Chelsea Football club confirmed this in a brief statement they released via the club’s office Twitter page.
See the post below:
Marc Cucurella joined Brighton for £15m last summer and was named the club’s player of the season after impressing in his debut campaign.
Manchester City had a £30m bid for the left-back turned down last week; a gesture that believably triggered Chelsea’s interest and willingness to meet Brighton’s £55m asking price.
