With the transfer of Cucurella, the Londoners are outperforming their competitor Manchester City. The Skyblues also wanted to upgrade their squad with the former FC Barcelona youth player, but bit their teeth at the transfer fee. The Seagulls paid 18 million euros to Getafe FC for the left foot last year.

Cucurella can occupy several positions on the left flank and thus play to his strengths on the offensive in different game systems.

Club boss Todd Boehly says: “Marc is a top defender with proven Premier League quality who will continue to strengthen our squad for the new season. We are delighted that Marc will be a part of Chelsea’s present and future.”
