Chelsea broke the bank and we can call it a repeat since the arrival of Todd Boehly at the head of the English club. The Blues, who have already recruited Andrey Santos (€12.5m), David Datro Fofana (€12m) and Benoît Badiashile (€38m), have just dealt themselves another blow in this transfer market with Mykhaylo Mudryks arrival. While he recently celebrated his 22nd birthday (January 5), the Krasnohrad native has just become the biggest transfer from a Ukrainian club, arriving for a sum of around €110m (€70m + €40m bonus) on the Perfidious Albion site. A completely crazy figure, which is explained by Shakhtar Donetsk’s reluctance to part with it and the battle between Arsenal and Chelsea in this matter.

Revealing himself during the 2021/2022 season by slowly taking a starting place in Roberto De Zerbi’s squad, the right-hander quickly showed great potential. With a great technical background, as well as high percussion and passing qualities, he finished his first season with 2 goals and 9 offers in 19 games. A fanfare debut that allows him to discover the Ukrainian team (8 caps). Remained this summer despite interest from Brentford, Bayer Leverkusen or Nice, he finally gained ground.

Chelsea beat Arsenal

In a club squeezed by the war and the exodus of its Brazilians from the country, Shakhtar Donetsk were forced to give local players more prominence, allowing Mykhaylo Mudryk to become the undisputed star of the team. Brilliant both in the league and in the Champions League (10 goals and 8 offers in 18 games), he was able to confirm the beginning already shown while increasing his statistics. A confirmation appreciated in the Premier League, especially by Arsenal and Chelsea.

Arsenal made the initial offers, but Chelsea followed up by upping the ante to the point of snapping up the young prodigy. In a statement, the English club welcomed the news: – Mykhailo Mudryk has completed his move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea after agreeing personal terms with the club. The Ukraine international, who turned 22 earlier this month, signed an eight-and-a-half-year deal with the Blues to seal his move to Stamford Bridge.
