“No agreement has been reached with any club” - Chelsea dealt transfer blow as Premier League club quash transfer rumors with official statement


Chelsea have been dealt a huge blow as Brighton and Hove Albion have quashed all transfer rumors about Marc Cucurella. The Seagulls have explicitly mentioned that no agreement has been reached with any side for the Spaniard's sale. In a club statement on Twitter , they said:

"Contrary to inaccurate reports from numerous media outlets this evening, no agreement has been reached with any club to sell Marc Cucurella."

Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that Chelsea had reached an agreement in principle to sign Cucurella in a deal worth £52.5 million. However, following Brighton's clarification, all rumors will now be put to rest.

The former Real Betis man has been the subject of interest from Barcelona and Manchester City too, with both sides looking for a new left-back.

However, Brighton's refusal to reduce the asking price has forced City to look at other alternatives, according to GOAL, while their Catalan counterparts are also looking at Chelsea's Marcos Alonso.

GOAL also reported that the Blues are willing to meet Brighton's demands for the player and that puts them in pole position to sign the 24-year- old.

Cucurella's impressive first season with the Seagulls has made him a hot property on the transfer market. Signed for £15 million from Getafe last year, the Spaniard quickly established himself as a key figure in the Brighton side.
