Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella is looking forward to the second half of the season with the team. The full-back signed for the Blues from Brighton for a fee of 60.5 million in this summer.
However, his career for the Blues has not started smoothly as expected. Although, he has said that he trusts his abilities and the abilities of manager Graham Potter.
MARC CUCURELLA BACKS MANAGER GRAHAM POTTER
Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella is looking forward to the second half of the season with the team. He has also said that the team benefited from the time in Abu Dhabi. However, the Blues fans were disappointed to see the season-ending injury to Armando Broja. Although, there were also positives for the team. The team looked together in attack and defense in the friendly against Aston Villa. However, they suffered a loss against Villa. Although, the results in friendly do not matter.
This is because half of their first-team players were playing World Cup with their national teams.
He further said,
“All of it is a process. The first season with Graham in Brighton the results were not good, they stayed down in the table. “They continued with the same ideas, working, working and working. Then, last season and this season they played really good with the same ideas. “We need to work and understand his ideas and the results will arrive. It is difficult because it is a new coach with different ideas and it is difficult to change without the time to train. “This part of the season we have time, we meet more and know the ideas of the coach. This second part of the season, I am excited for.”
CHELSEA WILL ALSO HOPE TO HAVE A POSITIVE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
According to reports, Chelsea are already looking for a striker to replace injured Armando Broja. Armando Broja suffered an ACL season-ending injury in their friendly against Aston Villa. Hence, the priority is to find a striker. The Blues are also looking to sign a midfielder in the January transfer window. This is because Jorginho and N’Golo Kante‘s contracts expire in the next summer. They have also not signed new contracts. Hence, the Blues must start planning for the future of the club.
They have already started getting things in place. According to reliable transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Chelsea are close to signing Datro Fofana from Molde in an £ 8.6 million move. They are also close to an agreement for Christopher Nkunku. However, he will join in the next summer transfer window. Hence, they are actively looking to sign an experienced striker. The likes of Matheus Cunha, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Joao Felix continue to be linked for the January move. However, the club are also reportedly looking at Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice for the midfielder position.
Hence, it looks like Chelsea are finally getting their plans started under Graham Potter. Their first half of the season work was outdone by a messy summer transfer window and the sacking of Thomas Tuchel. Hence, Todd Boehly will hope that the Blues can at least qualify for the Champions League next season.
