Revealed: Chelsea’s stance on Marc Cucurella joining Man United


An insight into the stance of the powers that be at Chelsea, regarding Marc Cucurella’s potential move to Premier League rivals Manchester United, has been provided on Sunday evening.

The name of Spanish international Cucurella, of course, has taken its place front and centre in the headlines on the red half of Manchester over the course of the last 24 hours.

This comes after word was forthcoming that the out-of-favour Chelsea man had been identified as a potential addition on the part of the United brass.

Erik ten Hag and co. have been forced into the market for reinforcements at left-back, after Luke Shaw suffered a training ground injury which is expected to keep him sidelined for several months.

With backup Tyrell Malacia also out of action, Cucurella is therefore viewed as a potential low-cost loan signing.

One possible stumbling block in any potential deal, though, comes in the form of the stance of the Chelsea brass.

Would Todd Boehly and co. be open to the prospect of reinforcing a direct rival so late in the window?

Well, as alluded to above, an insight into precisely that has this evening been forthcoming.

And the news, it would appear, is of an altogether positive nature for those of a Manchester United persuasion.

As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano:

‘Chelsea are open to letting Cucurella leave on loan but only at their conditions.’

Such ‘conditions’ are understood to come in the form of a considerable loan fee, as well as the full coverage of Cucurella’s significant wages.

It now remains to be seen whether Manchester United are willing to meet the terms laid out.
