He denies millionaire Brighton/Chelsea deal by C…
Marc Cucurella’s “series” is close to being resolved. Although Brighton on Wednesday denied an alleged deal with Chelsea by the Spanish side for more than €60million, the ‘ACE’ newspaper assures that the negotiation closed with 68 ‘kilos’ and the same will officially do theThursday . In the meantime, FC Barcelona is following the case closely, since the arrival of Alella d’Alella can facilitate the exit of two butted goals.
CLUB STATEMENT: MARC CUCURELLA.
Contrary to inaccurate reports from many Half outlets tonight, no deal has been reached with any club to sell Marc Cucurella.

In this direction, Barca expect Cucurella to arrive at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea to release César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso, with the one whose Blaugrana bosses have already had a speaking agreement for several weeks. In the case of the left-back, he would sign a three-season deal with a salary hovering around 5 million euros net per season. For its part, the chord of ‘Azpi’ would be similar, although perhaps of a shorter length. The ‘blues’ ask for 25M for both.
For the group led by Thomas Tuchel, the drops of the Spaniards will be added to those of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger, with whom the ‘blues’ will all lose their title of defender of the last seasons. Only Thiago Silva will survive of the eleven Champions League winners in 2021 in front of the Manchester City, but in Stamford Bridge the confidence can fichar reinforcements in what it subtracts from the market veraniego not to remain descompensados as far as the defenders refers .

Although the Londinenses’ priority was Jules Koundé, now hopes are pinned on Marc Cucurella. The former Barça player arrived in England in August 2021 in Brighton in exchange for 20 million euros. With a current value of 28 ‘kilos’, seems absurd that Chelsea pay a similar amount by the Spaniard, the one who is also claimed by the Manchester Citybut even journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed the impending deal.
Cucurella will be the second most expensive Spaniard
To materialize his arrival at Stamford Bridge, Marc will become the second strongest Spanish player in history. The top leads him Kepa Arrizabalaga, by the one that Chelsea paid 80 ‘kilos’ to Athletic de Bilbao in 2018. After four seasons (the last two as acting), the rumor that the Basque guardameta will leave gave way to Napoli. Kepa has a deal until June 2025. Will he lead Cucurella with the same luck?
