OFFICIAL: Marc Cucurella completes Chelsea move on a six-year contract


Chelsea are essentially paying Brighton £55m to buy Cucurella

Chelsea have completed the signing of Marc Cucurella from Brighton.

The player is likely to train with the squad today and should be in contention to feature vs Everton if called upon.

Cucurella came through at La Masia but grew exponentially at Eibar under Jose Luis Mendilibar on loan, before Jose Bordalas took him under his wing at Getafe. Curiously, both of those clubs utilised Cucurella as a left-midfielder, while Brighton used him as part of a back three at times.

It shows his tremendous versatility and mental intelligence to be able to move around the pitch with such ease. Just three months ahead of the World Cup, Spain manager Luis Enrique is famed for picking players on form and a move to Chelsea may put the uncapped Cucurella in with a shot at making the squad.
