Mykhailo Mudryk had already arrived at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea reportedly reached a deal with the Shakhtar Donetsk winger.
When Chelsea and Crystal Palace played in the Premier League on Sunday, Mykhailo Mudryk was in the VIP section. Graham Potter’s Chelsea is hoping to break their losing streak. Therefore Mudryk’s presence is crucial.
Mudryk has passed the medical examination and will return to Shakhtar Donetsk’s training facility in Turkey. Once the documentation is finished, the transaction will be executed. Chelsea’s official Instagram account has updated its bio to include Mudryk’s username.
Arsenal expressed strong interest in signing Mudryk, along with Chelsea. Mudryk suggested that he was eager to join Arsenal as well. He uploaded images of himself taking in the Brighton, West Ham, and Arsenal matches. Mikel Arteta was also referred to be a “fantastic manager” by him.
Chelsea will be required to pay an initial fee of £62 million and further fees of $26.5 million. Winning the Premier League and Champions League and conditions based on performance are some of these add-ons.
Chelsea manager Graham Potter on Mykhailo Mudryk’s signing
Manager Graham Potter spoke on new acquisition Mykhailo Mudryk following the west London team’s victory over Crystal Palace. He stated on the club’s website:
“Young player with a bright future, he. He attacks the backline quickly and directly, is able to go wide but also has thrilling qualities in the closing third. He is an exhilarating player, and our followers will appreciate him.
Chelsea hopes Mudryk gets going immediately and turns around their terrible season thus far. They scored only 22 goals in 19 games, placing them 10th in the Premier League standings.
The Blues’ next match is Saturday against Liverpool at Anfield (January 21).
A portion of Mykhailo Mudryk’s Chelsea transfer funds were used by Rinat Akhmetov, the owner and president of Shakhtar Donetsk, to aid in the war relief efforts in Ukraine.
The Blues spent £87 million, including add-ons, to finalise the winger’s acquisition on Sunday (January 15). Mudryk had previously been closely associated with Arsenal, but Shakhtar hung on for their desired price, which Chelsea met.
PSV transfer stance as Chelsea open talks for Noni Madueke
Football. London has learned that Chelsea and PSV Eindhoven are still in talks for the services of Noni Madueke.
According to a source who spoke to football. London, although Madueke and Mudryk both play wide, Chelsea’s acquisition of the former has kept them from trying to sign the latter. Over the weekend, discussions with PSV continued, but progress had yet to be made as of this writing.
Following the loss of Cody Gakpo to Liverpool, PSV is confident that Madueke will not be sold this month. Madueke is believed to be content at the Philips Stadion and is unaffected by the persistent rumours about his future.
Ruud van Nistelrooy, the manager of PSV and a former striker for Manchester United, stated last week that there was no desire to trade Madueke even though there was a lot of interest in the player who played the entire game as his team drew with Fortuna Sittard on Sunday. However, Van Nistelrooy acknowledged that he could only sometimes control what happens with transfers.
The PSV manager stated, “I am aware of interest.” “However, as a coach, you would prefer to retain your top players. Clubs may make an offer that cannot be rejected in certain circumstances.”
If Chelsea hires Madueke, he will be the club’s fourth player to be under 21 to be hired this month. As Chelsea looks to make their sixth January signing, negotiations are still ongoing but are anticipated to advance this week.
Mykhailo Mudryk, 22, was announced as the club’s fifth acquisition in the January transfer window after they finalised an £88 million deal to acquire him from Shakhtar Donetsk. As Kai Havertz’s game-winning goal against Crystal Palace pulled Chelsea even with Liverpool in terms of points, Graham Potter watched his team return to winning.
