The transfer market continues to move in European football, just the day the leagues start in several countries. In England, Marc Cucurella officially became the brand new signing of Chelsea. The Spaniard, who at some point caught the interest of Manchester City, arrived from Brighton and signed a contract until 2028.

The amount of the transfer is unknown, but the British media value the agreement at 60 million pounds (73 million dollars, 71 million euros).

Marc Cucurella, 24, could even play Saturday against Everton in his first game with his new team, at Goodison Park.

“I am very happy, it is a great opportunity for me to join one of the best clubs in the world and I am going to work hard to be happy here and help the team”Cucurella noted on the Chelsea website.

The Spanish winger has now become the ‘Blues’ latest pre-season signing after Kalidou Koulibaly, Raheem Sterling and Carney Chukwuemeka.

Cucurella’s move is likely to facilitate the loan of Chelsea’s young centre-back Levi Colwill, interestingly enough, to Brighton.

Both Manchester City and Chelsea were interested in Cucurella, but the reigning English league champions expressed reluctance over the high asking price. The London outfit, under the auspices of new owner Todd Boehly, kept him in their sights.

“The paperwork is in process, hopefully we can do it before noon and that Marc (Cucurella) is our player; young, hungry, mobile and a very smart gamer”, declared the Chelsea coach, the German Thomas Tuchel, at a press conference moments before the transfer was confirmed.
