Mykhailo Mudryk Is A Great Buy For Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk Chief Insists


    Ukrainian attacker, Mykhailo Mudryk could be one of the best players in the Premier League in spite of his slow start to life at Chelsea, according to Shakhtar Donetsk Chief.

    Chelsea splashed an outrageous £88 million to acquire the attacker from Shakhtar Donetsk ahead of Arsenal in the winter transfer window.

    However, in spite of a magnificent debut against The Reds, Liverpool, Mudryk is yet to get a goal or an assist for Chelsea as Graham Potter’s side still continue in their abysmal form all season long.

    Mudryk would still bring joy to Chelsea fans:

    In spite of their troubles, the sporting director of Shakhtar Donetsk, Darijo Sarna, who was pivotal in the move for the winger to the Premier League, says the Ukrainian can still bring a lot of joy to Chelsea fans. 

    In an interview with Football Ramble, Darijo Sarna said: “Don’t worry about Mykhailo Mudryk, you will enjoy watching him. His first game against Liverpool, this is 35 percent of Mudryk, believe me.

    “Chelsea is not in a good mood, they are not playing amazing football and don’t have good results but they have a lot of players and need time.

    He further added: 

    “Mykhailo will be okay, don’t worry. Mykhailo will bring a lot of happiness to Chelsea fans.

    “Chelsea now is not in a good mood and Mykhailo as well but Mykhailo has all the qualities to be one of the best players in the Premier League in the next two years.

    “Mudryk is one of the best three players in his position in Europe.

    “After Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Jr it is Mudryk.”

    The Ukrainian forward made his intentions known strongly about joining Arsenal

    Mykhailo Mudryk was vociferous of his desire to sign for Arsenal before Chelsea sneaked around and took him to Stamford Bridge.

    Shakhtar Donetsk didn’t let go of Mykhailo Mudryk to Arsenal because the Gunners did not meet their valuation of the player. 

    Darijo Sarna stated that it was a simple choice for the winger to make once a deal had been accepted. 

    Darijo Sarna stated: “Regarding the transfer proposal, the price was €100 million (£88m), €70 million plus €30 million.

    “Arsenal were in love with Mudryk, but Chelsea were more concrete and were more ready to buy him.

    “With respect to Arsenal, in the end it was the decision of Mudryk because Chelsea paid what we wanted and we made an agreement with Chelsea he said he wants to go to Chelsea, it’s simple.”

    Mudryk was born on the fifth (5th) of January in 2001. He graduated from the youth teams of Shakhtar Donetsk and he started his professional career in 2018. 

    He then left Shakhtar Donetsk on loan to Arsenal Kyiv before returning back to the side after spending four months on loan. 

    Shakhtar Donetsk further sent him away once again on loan to FK Desna Chernihiv in the summer of 2020. 

    After spending four months on loan with FK Desna Chernihiv he returned back to his parent club, Shakhtar Donetsk, where he spent two and half years with the side before putting pen-to-paper on a eight-and-a-half-year deal with the West London side. 

    Across fourty (40) appearances for the Ukrainian side, Mudryk scored twelve (12) goals in all competitions.
