Chelsea co-owner, Todd Boehly, has revealed why the club signed defender, Marc Cucurella, from Brighton & Hove Albion.
Boehly said Chelsea signed Cucurella from Brighton because the 24-year-old is an elite defender who has proven his quality in the Premier League.
Chelsea had on Friday confirmed the signing of Cucurella from Brighton.
Cucurella signed a six-year contract with the West London club.
Reacting, Boehly told Chelsea’s official website: “Marc is an elite defender of proven Premier League quality and he further strengthens our squad going into the new season.
“We continue to work on and off the pitch, and we’re delighted Marc will be a part of the present and future at Chelsea.”
On his part, Cucurella said: “I’m really happy. It’s a big opportunity for me to join one of the best clubs in the world and I’m going to work hard to be happy here and help the team.”
