Chelsea FC: Despite 100 million men Mykhailo Mudryk: Blues not yet through with transfers

Michailo Mudryk casually posed for the first photos in the new jersey before presenting himself to the fans. Wrapped in a Ukraine flag, the 22-year-old stepped onto the pitch of Stamford Bridge during the half-time break in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and enjoyed the enthusiastic applause of the spectators.

In the future, Mudryk will go there for Chelsea to score goals and, together with the other newcomers, ensure successful times in West London again.

National player Kai Havertz’s team paid a lot for this hope. The blues, who are very generous this winter, will transfer up to 100 million euros including bonus payments for the hitherto relatively unknown Ukrainian from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Mudryk, who signed a contract until the summer of 2031, is supposed to revive the sometimes weak offensive with just 22 goals in 19 league games with his goal threat. In any case, the eight-time Ukrainian national player has positive references.

Mudryk Top-Scorer in der Ukraine

In the current Champions League season, the lightning-fast offensive player scored three goals in six games, set up two more and played a key role in Shakhtar’s qualification for the round of 16. In the Ukrainian league he is a top scorer.

The fact that Chelsea are paying large sums for this is not new either. This winter, the injury-plagued tenth-placed player has signed Joao Felix (on loan), Benoit Badiashile, David Fofana and Andrey Santos, spending a total of around 140 million euros.

In terms of sport, the Champions League places are already a long way off with a ten-point deficit. That’s why it should now be the use of the really big purse, but team manager Graham Potter has already warned.

“I don’t think we need to be particularly careful, but I think you just have to understand that we don’t have about 10 players available,” Potter said. “Obviously you can’t just sign players to replace them because on You end up with a squad of 30. You have to do the right thing and the January window is complicated.”

competitive struggle on the offensive

Especially on the offensive, there are now numerous players, including Mudryk, who want to be in the starting XI.

In addition to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Hakim Ziyech, for example, Havertz and Felix on loan now have to fight harder for playing times and draw attention to themselves with goals.

And is the big shopping tour over now?

This does not seem so. Chelsea have already expressed interest in midfielder Moises Caicedo and winger Leandro Trossard from Potter’s former clubs Brighton & Hove Albion, according to recent rumours.
