Why has Mudryk picked Chelsea over Arsenal? Reason explained; Shirt numbers available to Mykhaylo Mudryk 

The work of Graham Potter According to journalist Rudy Galetti on Twitter, Chelsea has offered Mykhailo Mudryk more money than Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, as well as a longer contract, which is why the Shakhtar Donetsk winger is headed to Stamford Bridge rather than the Emirates Stadium.

Despite Arsenal’s interest, the Italian writer claims Mudryk is flying to London for a medical with Chelsea.

According to Galetti, Chelsea’s contract offer to the 22-year-old Ukraine international winger is “longer and richer” than what Arsenal is willing to give him.

According to 90min, Chelsea has agreed to pay Shakhtar more in transfer costs than Arsenal.

The Ukrainian Premier League club issued a statement claiming are on the verge of finalizing an agreement with Chelsea.

AWESOME DECISION?

Mykhailo Mudryk’s choice of Chelsea over Arsenal is not a poor one in our opinion.

Both are major clubs with global brands.

Arsenal may win the Premier League this season, but Chelsea has won trophy after trophy over the last two decades or more.

Yes, Chelsea has new owners, but the club will undoubtedly want to keep that winning mentality even if they have a difficult season this time.

Chelsea shirt numbers available to Mykhaylo Mudryk as dramatic transfer draws closer

Chelsea are now expecting to confirm the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk following talks between the teams on Saturday. The Ukrainian club confirmed the discussions, while Chelsea teased on social media before stating on their official website that they are ‘near to agreeing’ a deal to sign him.

Having been the focus of Arsenal’s attention throughout the summer and into this month, a deal to get Mudryk is a significant coup for Chelsea, given his strong performances for Shakhtar in the Champions League. He has 10 goals and eight assists in all competitions this season.

He is scheduled to join a number of new arrivals at Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Joao Felix, and David Datro Fofana have already been confirmed for Stamford Bridge. There is a lot of interest in commercial activities when it comes to big name announcements.

Chelsea now has a significant decision to make on which shirt number to give him. Felix took over the renowned No. 11 top, which had previously been worn by Didier Drogba and, more recently, Timo Werner. That is the most obvious attacking number left at the club, but he won’t be available until at least the summer, when Felix’s loan expires.

Badiashile was ranked fourth, while Fofana was ranked 27th. Mudryk has worn the No. 10 for his club in his relatively brief senior career, but he has also worn No. 20 and No. 91. Denis Zakaria, another loanee, is presently wearing the No. 20 jersey. Again, if he isn’t committed to a long-term contract by the end of the summer, the door could be opened for the possible new guy.

Mudryk has also worn No. 10 for Ukraine, but also No. 14, No. 20, and No. 24 on occasion. There aren’t many so-called desirable numbers remaining for Mudryk to choose from, but with Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Hakim Ziyech all in with a possibility of leaving Stamford Bridge, their numbers could become available in the summer (10, 29, 9 and 22, respectively.

Squad numbers currently available to Mykhaylo Mudryk: 2, 3, 15, 25, 31.
