Cucurella the most expensive signing of Chelsea

The Spaniard becomes one of the club's most expensive signings

The Chelsea announced the signing of the Spanish Marc Cucurella for 68 million euros, after his transfer to Manchester City by Brighton was frustrated.

The London team reported through its social networks that the contract with the former FC Barcelona youth player will be in force until 2028.

"I'm very happy. It is a great opportunity for me to join one of the best clubs in the world and I will work hard to be happy here and help the team », he expressed.

The agreement, which is equivalent to 65 million fixed euros and the rest in variables, makes Cucurella one of the most expensive defenders in history.

The player arrived at Brighton last season from Getafe in exchange for 18 million euros and quickly became one of the best fullbacks in the league.

Cucurella also becomes the third most expensive Spaniard in history, just below Kepa Arrizabalaga (80 million) and Rodri (70 million).

"He's a great player, he can play in several positions," said coach Thomas Tuchel when asked about this addition.
