Chelsea Football Club has completed the signing of an attack-minded player to cap off their summer 2023 transfer transaction.
On Friday, September 1, 2023, The Blues posted a statement on its official website confirming Cole Palmer’s acquisition. Christopher Nkunku’s injury during the preseason games left Chelsea in severe need of a man who could fill the void.
According to reports, Chelsea paid £50 million to sign Manchester City to a seven-year contract, which will likely keep him at the club through the summer of 2030 with the option of an additional year.
Cole Palmer expressed his excitement on joining Chelsea on the club’s website. According to him he joined the Blues because of the project of the club.
“I am excited to get started and it feels great to sign. I joined Chelsea because the project here sounds good and because of the platform I will try to showcase ny talents. It is a young and hungry squad and, hopefully, we can do something here.”
He thanked Manchester City for the support that was showed to him since he joined the club at the age of seven.
“Man City have been part of my life for 15 years and it is all I have known since the age of 6. Thank you to Pep Guardiola and his staff for the opportunity to play for this amazing club and giving me the opportunity only a few can dream of. I will be forever grateful.”
A total of £1.02 billion will have been spent under Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership due to the arrival of the English international. Additionally, it will increase their spending this summer to £419 million. Spurs only spent £412 million during the course of Mauricio Pochettino’s more than five years and 11 transfer windows.
