Transfer: Marc Cucurella completes move to Chelsea
Marc Cucurella successfully completed his physical prior to his transfer to Chelsea after spending the afternoon in London.
Chelsea has so far brought on Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Gabriel Slonina, and Carney Chukwuemeka this summer.
Thomas Tuchel wants a striker and another center back, so the Blues’ window is still open.
Although Manchester City had been mentioned as a potential destination for the Spaniard, Pep Guardiola’s team was unwilling to pay more than £40 million on him.
Fortunately, Todd Boehly has a lot of money to spend, and after meeting the Seagulls’ valuation of more than £50 million, he ‘hijacked’ the sale.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Cucurella has now successfully finished his medical, and all that is needed to complete the transfer is to review and sign the paperwork.
The transfer journalist also discloses that as part of the transaction, Levi Colwill will go on loan to Brighton.
There are currently no confirmed sources about the announcement’s timing, but if everything goes according to plan, it may occur as soon as tomorrow.
