‘This Has Got Me Excited’ ‘We Should Stay Away From Him’ Fans React As Chelsea Reportedly Table £27m Bid For La Liga Defender

Chelsea are prepared to pay €30m (£27m) to sign Getafe left-back Marc Cucurella, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Getafe only recently signed the 22-year-old from Barcelona on a permanent basis for €10m (£9m), after he spent the season on loan at the La Liga club, but it seems the Blues are willing to triple what they paid for him.

Supporters on Twitter are sceptical about the source of the story and some are not sure Cucurella has the quality to play for Chelsea:

It is thought that Leicester’s Ben Chilwell remains manager Frank Lampard’s first choice to strengthen at left-back, while there have been reports that Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico is the club’s backup option.

Where Cucurella stands in the pecking order of priorities, it is anyone’s guess. The Spaniard looks to be valued at a higher price than Tagliafico so it would be a big surprise if Chelsea are willing to pay more for the Getafe player than the Argentinian international.
