He has been made to pray but the Chelsea has made official the arrival of Marc Cucurella. The versatile footballer, who can act as a winger, central defender or midfielder, arrives from Brighton for a sum of €68 million.

The London team has announced it sarcastically, since it has replicated the message sent by Cucurella’s old club denying his departure. “Following numerous media reports this week, we can confirm that sAn agreement has been reached with Brighton and Hove Albion for the signing of Marc Cucurella“, Said Chelsea.

A signing that has been gestated in the last week and that has caused the footballer to have opted for the ‘blues’ instead of Manchester City, which was very close to taking over his services.

“I am very happy. It is a great 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”, were the words of the Spanish international after signing with his new team.
