Chelsea includes Ukrainian striker Michaelo Modrick

Ukraine’s international striker, Mikhailo Modric, signed an eight-and-a-half-year contract with English club Chelsea from Shakhtar Danitsk, the London club announced.

The Ukrainian club explained on its website that “the clubs agreed on the details of the transaction, Shakhtar will receive 70 million euros and 30 million euros in expected rewards.”

The 22-year-old, who has starred in the Champions League this season, has been the focus of attention for London’s Grim Chelsea, Arsenal.

According to reports, Ganners was close to reaching an agreement with Shakhtar, but the latter rejected the amount claimed by the Ukrainian club and tried to get a distributed payment.

However, Chelsea was more ready to complete the deal, agreeing to pay the asking price, and Saturday’s meeting between Shakhtar’s president, Renat Ahmedov, and Chelsea’s American partner with an acceptable gift was enough to reach a deal agreed by the player in turn.

“I am very happy to sign for Chelsea, it is a huge club and my role is great and a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career,” Modrick said in the statement.

Mudrick occupies the winger’s position, as well as his ability to fill roles in the middle, allowing him to participate directly in 18 goals in 18 games this season, including three goals and two crucial assists in the Champions League.

“We are pleased to welcome Michaelo to Chelsea, he is a very promising talent and we believe he will be a major addition to our team now and for years to come.”

The London club are struggling locally, finishing 10th within 19 points of rivals and leading neighbours Arsenal and 10 points from fourth.

Modric is considered the fifth winter deal for Graham Potter’s side after French defender Bonoa Padiachel, Ivory forward David Datro Fofana, Brazilian youngster Andrey Santos and Portuguese striker Joao Felix, who joined on loan from Spanish side Atletico Madrid until the end of the season.

Since last summer, Chelsea’s transfer spending has reached Euro450 million.
