How Chelsea overcame Man City?

How much did Chelsea spend on defender Marc Cucurella?

The Chelsea-Manchester City deal to sign defender Marc Cucurella had to be postponed until today, August 5, after it was revealed that ‘The Blues’ needed to spend more money to persuade the Brighton club to agree.


Previously, all agreements between Chelsea and Brighton regarding the transfer of defender Marc Cucurella were thought to have been completed for a fee ranging between £50 million and £52.5 million. However, Brighton announced at the last minute that “no agreement has been reached.”

At the same time, defender Marc Cucurella, 24, from Spain, after also reaching an agreement on personal terms with Chelsea club, flew to London to undergo medical procedures to prepare for his debut.


However, Marc Cucurella’s debut with Chelsea on August 4 had to be postponed. Brighton club realized the desire of the Stamford Bridge team’s partner, so it sought to raise the transfer price. Previously, Man City had announced that the price of Marc Cucurella was only 40 million pounds, if they did not accept it, they would withdraw.


It was because Brighton let Chelsea “bite the hook” in the Marc Cucurella deal and made the London team finally accept to spend an additional £ 55 million in guaranteed transfer money and £ 7 million for added values. In total, this deal “The Blues” must spend up to 62 million pounds. A price that is considered very high for a rising player.

In addition, Chelsea was forced to loan Brighton defender Levi Colwill for a season in order to replace Marc Cucurella.

Meanwhile, Chelsea fans are putting pressure on the club’s management to convince captain Cesar Azpilicueta to extend his contract until June 2024 in order to “cut off” Barcelona.


In other news, PSG has officially signed Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, the fourth contract signed by new sports advisor Luis Campos after Vitinha, Mukiele, and Ekitike. In the opposite direction, Paris Saint-Germain officially loaned midfielder Wijnaldum to AS Roma.
