Chelsea FC has introduced their record signing, Mykhaylo Mudryk, following a massive €100 million transaction.
Despite a long-term personal terms agreement with Arsenal Football Club, the 22-year-old sensation switched to Chelsea and inked a massive contract that would last more than 30 years.
Chelsea Board nearly ruined the deal. Arsenal were unable to match Shakhtar Donetsk’s demands for Mykhailo Mudryk.
Both clubs agreed on an eight-year deal, giving the young Ukrainian master plenty of time to impress Graham Potter and the Chelsea fan base.
He was debuted as a Chelsea football player yesterday before their game against Crystal Palace, which they won 1-0.
In expressing his feelings towards the club, he stated his desire to contribute to the club’s greatness and his admiration for Chelsea’s legacy.
In his own words:
“I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea. This is a huge club, Premier League is a fantastic league and it’s a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career”
“I’m excited to meet my team-mates and I’m looking forward to working under Graham Potter”
