Marc Cucurella's First Words After Completing £62m Chelsea Transfer From Brighton

Chelsea signed Marc Cucurella from Brighton, while Levi Colwill joined the Blues on loan. After completing his £62 million move from Brighton, Marc Cucurella expressed his happiness at having joined ‘one of the top clubs in the world.’. A reported fee of £55 million has been paid by the Blues, with a further £7 million in add-ons still to be paid.

With a six-year contract and the promise of competition for Ben Chilwell, Thomas Tuchel has emphasized the strength that Cucurella’s versatility will provide. During his one season in Brighton, the 24-year-old was named the club’s player of the year, playing on the left flank and on the left as a back three. As a result of the player’s desire to play in the Champions League and his desire to get into Spain’s World Cup team, the Seagulls were able to facilitate the transfer of the defender. Cucucrella has acknowledged that the transfer represents a major opportunity.

In the end, he said: “Having a good time has made me feel great. This is an incredible chance for me, and I’m going to do everything I can to make myself at home at one of the world’s most renowned sports organizations.” When it comes to signing Cucurella, Chelsea’s owners have been enthused about the idea of the former Getafe star making an influence on the team now and in the future.

Todd Boehly, the Blues’ interim chairman and sports director, said: “A top-tier defender with Premier League experience, Marc joins our team just in time for the new campaign. On and off the pitch, we’re thrilled that Marc will be a member of the Chelsea family for the foreseeable future.”

the two co-controlling owners of Clearlake Capital, José E. and Behdad Eghbali, added the following “Marc’s arrival at Chelsea is a major step forward in our preparations for the new season. Now that we’re all ready to get started, Marc’s presence simply serves to enhance the anticipation. We’re glad to have him as a member!”
