Chelsea have just made the most expensive acquisition of the January transfer window so far after bringing Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk. The initial transfer fee will be around £ 62 million and it has the potential to add another £ 27 million depending on the performances of the player. The 22-year-old has been one of the sought-after players in the window with clubs like Arsenal also keen on signing him. However, it is understood that the Chelsea were always in the pole position to grab the signing of the winger, who has signed a deal for 8 ½ years with Chelsea.
“I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea. This is a huge club, in a fantastic league and it is a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career.I’m excited to meet my new teammates and I’m looking forward to working and learning under Graham Potter and his staff,” said the winger. In the January window alone, Chelsea have already spent a whopping £ 400 million on several new players but manager Graham Potter has so far struggled to get the best out of his players.
