Mauricio Pochettino, incoming manager of Chelsea is considering the possibility of selling Marc Cucurella. This is during the upcoming summer transfer window.
According to The Sun, Mauricio Pochettino, who is reportedly close to becoming the new Chelsea manager.Is considering potential player sales, including left-back Marc Cucurella. The 24-year-old Spanish international joined Chelsea from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer of 2022 for a reported fee of £60 million. While Manchester City was also interested in signing Cucurella. Chelsea managed to secure his transfer.
Cucurella is having a terrible season at Chelsea.
After making a strong impact in the Premier League with Brighton, Marc Cucurella’s time at Stamford Bridge hasn’t been as successful. At his former club, he boasted an impressive Who Scored rating of 6.94. Establishing himself as one of the standout players in his position. However, since joining Chelsea, his rating has slightly declined to 6.65 in the top flight. It could be argued that performing at his best has been more challenging in a team that has faced overall struggles.
Is Pochettino not interested in cucurella?
Marc Cucurella, formerly of Brighton, has demonstrated his potential as a top-level talent in the past. He received praise from Frank Lebouef, who described one of his previous displays for Chelsea as “fantastic.” This acknowledgment highlights Cucurella’s ability to excel at the highest level of football.
This campaign, Marc Cucurella, the left-back, has made 21 starts and three substitute appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League. Despite receiving criticism from former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher earlier in the season. Cucurella has provided two assists in these matches. Additionally, he has made four starts and four substitute appearances in the UEFA Champions League. And featured once in the Carabao Cup for Chelsea.
Our perspective is that Pochettino should retain the left-back during the summer of 2023. While it is true that the player has had a challenging campaign. It is important to consider that Chelsea, as a team, has faced difficulties as well. We believe that Cucurella deserves an opportunity to prove himself under Pochettino’s management in the upcoming season.
