Chelsea admitted their mistake with Mudryk?

Last spring, Chelsea spent 90 million pounds to intercept Shakhtar winger Mykhailo Mudryk from Arsenal! But the Ukrainian is clearly failing in the Premier League, so the Blues are exploring options with his loan.

In fact, only Shakhtar benefited from Mudryk’s transfer, for whom such a huge sum was like a breath of fresh air in difficult times. The Miners took advantage of Chelsea's incredible extravagance in the transfer market and sold their leader, who had played at a more or less high level for only six months.

Almost no one expected a quick adaptation in London from the 22-year-old Ukrainian, especially against the backdrop of Chelsea’s severe crisis throughout the 2022/23 campaign. However, in the summer, after Mauricio Pochettino was appointed head coach, Mudryk had several weeks to prove his suitability. It didn’t work out - zero goals and zero assists speak for themselves. And in the previous season, Mudryk had only one effective action in four months.

Yes, the whole team is frankly failing, but the Londoners are ready to send Mudryk on at least a six-month loan so that he can gain playing practice and return to Stamford Bridge only stronger and more experienced. At least this is ideal - everything depends solely on Mykhailo and his motivation.

What club can accommodate the Ukrainian? Firstly, there is Brighton, who are currently coached by Roberto De Zerbi. The ex-manager of Mudryk at Shakhtar. The Italian himself admires Mykhailo’s performance and dreams of working with him in the future. And British expert Stan Collymore sees the 22-year-old forward at Borussia Dortmund. He believes that Mykhailo needs to change leagues and at the same time be part of a team with a high level of ambition.

As for us, it’s best for Mudryk to change the scenery for a while, until Chelsea is seriously stormy. Mykhailo will still have time to prove himself in London, because there are still seven years until the end of the contract, and this is a long time.
