Todd Boehly 4.25bn takeover COMPLETE, opening bid for Kounde, £45m Marc Cucurella EXCLUSIVE – latest

Good morning Chelsea fans

Chelsea must pay at least £45million to win the race for Brighton defender Marc Cucurella, SunSport understands.

And they will also have to see off Manchester City and Tottenham to land the Spanish left-back.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, buoyed by the news that Todd Boehly’s £4.25billion takeover of the club has cleared its final hurdle, is plotting a major overhaul of his defence.

Cucurella fits the bill after a standout first season in England following a £15.4million transfer from Spanish outfit Getafe.

Tuchel is braced to lose left-back Marcos Alonso, who is keen to return to Spain.

Manchester United will swoop in ahead of Chelsea with a bid for RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku next week, according to reports.

Danny Drinkwater has finally left Chelsea and described his time with the club as “a business move gone wrong”.

The midfielder played just 23 times for the Blues since his 2017 move, with his last competitive match in the 2018 Community Shield.

And in a farewell posted on his Instagram account, Drinkwater, 32, described his turbulent time in West London.
