Di Marzio reveals Milan considered €100m Chelsea-bound winger as Leao replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed that AC Milan were one of the teams that were watching Mykhailo Mudryk closely, before he opted to join Chelsea.

It was confirmed by multiple sources including Sky yesterday that Chelsea have agreed a deal worth €100m with Shakhtar Donetsk for Mudryk, beating their London rivals Arsenal to his signature after Chelsea’s co-owner Behdad Eghbali and director of global transfers Paul Winstanley flew to Turkey to seal the operation.

Mudryk will undergo his medical today and should be at Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea play Crystal Palace this afternoon, with the Blues offering him a contract until 2030 as their incredible levels of spending continued.

Di Marzio spoke on Sky late last night and he gave some background on Mudryk, revealing that two clubs in Italy had their eye on him before eventually being priced out, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“Milan and Juve had paid attention to the player. Milan had Leao left, but they still needed 30-35 million cash, so it also took courage,” he said.

  1. Why would any attacker go to Chelsea? They have a bunch of attacking midfielders, wingers and attackers and keep overstocking. Mount, Havertz, Pulisic, Sterling, Aubameyang, Broja, Zyiech, David Fofana, Felix and Nkunku and Mudryik joining. They should buy Leao as well…😂😂😂😂

  2. Well… It’s always nice to read that Milan had considered buying future stars but didn’t. I feel really good about the Kvaradona-case in particular. It’s not like he would have made Milan any better and was waaaaaaaaaaay too expensive too, right? 😀

    And please share articles on Enzo Fernandez too. We haven’t read about that missed boat for a couple of days now.

  3. Chelsea have spent half a billion since June when the new owner took over.
    Where is UEFA or the other clubs, especially those that got fined or penalized by the FFP rule to say or do something about this.
    They didn’t even sell anyone

    1. thats bs shakhtar donetsk has been demanding 50+ mil all season so regardless of what his priice has been on sites like transfermarkt the management of the ukranian club has been very clear about that their demands would exceed the 50 mil mark.

  4. Preferring sporting project and proper career development over money was the worst mistake done to the young boy. It’s a big shame.lets see how it plays out.welcome to English Premier league

  5. LOL – ya all we needed was “30-35 million cash” LMAO – I think the meant 30-35M cash on top of the other 70M cash LOL. What a joke. Let’s not prented we can compete with the buying power of Chelsea or any other EPL club for that matter.
