Chelsea star Mykhailo Mudryk has been told that he made a mistake not signing for Arsenal during the January window
The 22-year-old had seemed destined to join Arsenal after months of being linked with the Emirates, only for the Blues to swoop in at the last minute with a sensational €100million (£88.5m) offer for the Shakhtar Donetsk star.
The Ukrainian international, who turned 22 earlier this month, has put pen to paper on an eight-and-a-half year contract with the Blues to seal his move to Stamford Bridge.
However – former Shakhtar U-19 coach Andreas Carrasco has now come out to suggest that Arsenal’s playing style may have been perfect for Mudryk.
As per UA Tribuna, he admitted, “Today, Arsenal, with its style of play, could be more suitable for Mudryk, who successfully uses dribbling and plays one-on-one. It would be better for him, in my opinion.”
After the move to London – Mudryk expressed just how delighted with the switch – admitting that he is happy to play for such a huge club.
‘I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea,’ Mudryk said after completing his move.
‘This is a huge club, in a fantastic league and it is a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career. I’m excited to meet my new team-mates and I’m looking forward to working and learning under Graham Potter and his staff.’
His heart was set on a move to Arsenal – he wanted a move to the Emirates – but they would not meet his demands.
It is never good when a player arrives because of the money – but Chelsea fans will just be hoping that he comes and impresses – because all eyes will not be on him.
But we agree – the style of Arsenal would have suited Mudryk way more
