Chelsea join the race for Getafe’s Marc Cucurella

Premier League side Chelsea have reportedly joined the growing list interested in a summer move for Getafe wing back Marc Cucurella.

The Spanish U21 international is currently on loan with Jose Bordalas’ side from Barcelona, and he has enjoyed a strong showing in 2019-20, with 24 La Liga appearances, as they push for a second successive European qualification.

However, his performances have attracted a number of suitors in recent weeks, with reports from Goal.com claiming Chelsea, Napoli and Bundesliga pair Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen both interested in a move.

His contract situation at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez is complicated however, with Getafe almost certain to exercise their purchase option in the summer.

Cucurella can joined the club as part of a pre-agreed €6M deal, with Barcelona retaining a 40% of any future sell on fee for the 21-year old.

The reported deal on offer from Getafe would also include a €25M release clause, which all of the interested parties would be confident of matching should he want to leave.
